I've been learning Dakota for 25 years and teaching at community classes and language camps for 12. I currently co-teach community classes with my husband, Chantemaza (Neil McKay), here in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I'm happy to talk about navigating the proper supportive role for non-Indigenous learners and teachers of Indigenous languages, and developing curriculum for adult learners. Phidamayayapi ye - thank you all!
