Dakota language a resurgence among Native youth

dakota language resurgence 1.jpgFrom a park picnic table a woman named Ruby watches her 12-year-old granddaughter, Shayla, answer a reporter's questions. They are mostly one-word answers. Are you having fun learning the Dakota language? "Yes." Is it hard? "No." What's the hardest part? "Sentences."
Shayla is as tiny as her answers are short. She's at the Birch Coulee County Park just outside of Morton to celebrate the end of a summer camp for Dakota youth learning the language. Look in any direction and there are clusters of kids playing language games.
Her parents don't speak the language. Ruby, her grandmother, doesn't speak it either. "My grandparents raised me," she says, "and Dakota is all they ever spoke. But then they took it away from us in the schools and we lost it. I'm proud of Shayla. Very proud."
Lacrosse brings youth together across cultures

lacrosse youth 1.jpgIt could have been a pitched battle of Eagles, fought swiftly and without mercy. But the lacrosse game played on a recent hot summer day between the Eagles of Prairie Island Indian Community and the Eagles of Apple Valley was a friendlier affair, pitting two teams who respected the other's sportsmanship and reverence for the Creator's Game.
In fact, the two groups of boys - separated by history, culture and geography - came together to play, not one team against the other, but on mixed teams playing for the love of the game.

The game, at a small park in suburban Burnsville, and the family picnic that followed was the idea of a group of Valley Athletic Association youth lacrosse players who were inspired by the Prairie Island team's sportsmanship when the two teams played earlier in the summer.

"We had a really, really good time  [playing against Prairie Island]," said Adam Johnson, an Apple Valley eighth-grader and one of the organizers of the family get-together. "I wanted them to come here so that we could do something fun with them."

"My son came home after the first game and said, 'Mom, that was so much fun," said Tyler Isenmann, a professional photographer who has visited Prairie Island several times to shoot photos of the young players. "He was so impressed with their sportsmanship. There was no smack talk."
