The Dakota and Ojibwe languages are considered treasured relatives to American Indian people in Minnesota. These languages provide an unparalled worldview and intrically describes how life evolved in North America, however, the number of fluent speakers are rapidly declining. MPS Indian Education works to provide students, parents and teachers with resources to not only revitalize these precious languages, but to propel student learning by providing academic rigor through Indigenous language instruction. 

Recently, there has been evidence to support students learning Indigenous languages increases academic outcomes. We are here to support Indigenous language learning as a best practice for American Indian students to succeed in school!
