Described as the most extensive indigenous language app yet, a new program from Apple allows you to learn the Dakota Sioux language on the go.
The app, called Dakota One, is available for the iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone. It was developed in conjunction with the Marty Indian School in South Dakota, and contains a database of over seven hundred sound and image files. The app also features twenty-five identification categories, from animals and colors to numbers and clothing. The image database really brings the learning to life, which is great for young students.
The app is available for download here. All proceeds go to the Marty Indian School on the Yankton Indian Reservation to further their language preservation and revitalization goals.
