Project Overview

The goal of this project is to increase fluency and proficiency in the Dakhota language by creating a Dakhota Dictionary Mobile App that is linguistically accurate and widely accessible for both adult and youth language learners in the classroom and for individual study. The Dakhota Dictionary Mobile App will expand the Dakhota language lexical database's value as an archive preserving the Dakhota language, while presenting an accessible and vibrant new resource to a large and growing community of Dakhota language learners.
