As a class, students will learn the importance of greeting others in their own language by using greetings in the Dakota Language. The Dakota language will be specifically taught through a variety of short multimedia presentations.
This booklet is the foundational educational resource for the lesson material. It tells of the history and culture of the Dakota and the Whitecap Dakota First Nation. It describes their legacy of alliance with newcomers and Indigenous groups and their role in forming Canada and their contributions to our region today.
