MHA Language Project

MHA Language Project is a project of MHA Nation Tribal Education Department, Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College, NHSC Native American Studies Department and The Language Conservancy. The project aims to create as many new fluent speakers of Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara as possible using best-practice solutions such as effective teacher training, creation of teaching materials and resources, engaging youth in speaking the language, providing assessment testing, and building apps and multimedia projects. MHA Language Project is committed to providing support for existing MHA language teachers and encourages new teachers to join the tribal language revitalization effort. As part of this support, the MHA Tribal Education Department is sponsoring this 2-week summer training institute, as well as mid-year training events for teachers and learners.
