The Sisseton-Wahpeton-Oyate Dakotah Language Institute is a department of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate, a federally recognized Dakota nation, located primarily in the north-eastern corner of South Dakota. The Dakotah Language Institute is focused on the preservation, maintenance and revitalization of the Dakotah language. Through the hard work and dedication of community elders, they are able to offer a wide variety of Dakotah language learning resources. They are working with 7000 Languages to expand those resources into a 3-level digital Dakotah course.
