Arapaho Language School

I'm pleased to see another tribe taking active steps to revive its language. They have built a school for their young children where Arapaho will be spoken throughout. This is an optimum way to pass on the language to a younger generation -- the fluent speakers all being elders now. Hopefully they'll be able to undo the damage done by the invading Europeans. Read more about the program here.
