Easy Lakota Language Learning Activities Bookmarks!

Here is a simple Lakota language learning activity for you and your language learner.

Make a bookmark! For this activity, I selected four animals to teach the students how to say and write in Lakota. I printed off some free coloring images I found in a web search and taught the students how to say their names in Lakota.

After the students made their bookmarks, I read the students the book “Táku tókȟuŋpi he? – What are They Doing?” by the Lakota language consortium that features the animals.

It’s a simple way to help students learn vocab while incorporating it into a fun activity and hear that vocab used in a book!
