The MHA Nation – Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Tribes in Fort Berthold, ND – has partnered with the Language Conservancy to publish K-12 sequenced textbooks in all three languages. MHA also plans to establish teacher trainings in Total Physical Response, a second-language education method that has been proven effective and appropriate among Lakota language teachers.
TLC is proud to be affiliated with this unique nation, aiding its people in their quest to recover three distinctive languages. The long history of the three tribes is covered at the Nation’s History page. It will give you a sense of the dignity maintained by three distinct peoples living together and maintaining a civil society.
