Dakota Head Start launched at Lower Sioux Indian Community

 

September 5, 2018



With a dwindling number of fluent Dakota language speakers throughout Minnesota, the Lower Sioux Indian Community (LSIC) has started a unique Dakota language Head Start school and Early Head Start program at its Minnesota River Valley community. The programs – Cansayapi Wakanyeza Owayawa Oti (“Lower Sioux Children are Sacred”) – began functioning on Aug. 1. Now, a month later, it has children in 49 of the 52 available pupil positions.

“We expect to have the final three (positions) enrolled by the end of September,” said the programs’ Mariah Wabasha.
