New app teaches kids Dakota language

Posted: Updated:

MARTY, S.D. (AP) - The Marty Indian School on the Yankton Indian Reservation in South Dakota has released a new language app designed to teach children the Dakota language.

The app is called Dakota One. It includes more than 700 sound files and images in 25 categories including animals, numbers and clothing. 

A news release from the school says the app is available to download for the iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone for $9.99 from the iTunes store. 

The Dakota language is spoken by the Dakota people of the Sioux tribes. It is closely related to the Lakota language.
