5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource for learning the Dakota language 30 Nov 1999
By Erik Olson - Published on Amazon.com
After searching libraries, the net, and schools for an accurate, good Dakota dictionary, I finally found this book. I was, to be blunt, amazed! Not only does it have a great listing of words (that you can actually use), but it also includes a short introduction of grammar and usage.
I got to test my new skills at a recent Powwow in Minnesota, where I had an entire conversation (although slow!) with a Dakota man. Although he needed to correct me on a few words and some grammar, he was impressed. He was shocked when I told him I had only begun learning within the last six months! I could not have done it without the aid of this book! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

1.0 out of 5 stars Puzzling 14 Feb 2010
By David Little Beaver - Published on Amazon.com
I am Lakota on my father side and Dakota on my mother side. My mother finds the Dakota words in this dictionary puzzling, she doesn't recognize many of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful learning tool! 24 Nov 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This dictionary has been great to learn more of the Dakota language. We like learning more words all the time, as we live very near a Reservation. I've always loved learning about Native culture, so it's fun to be able to learn some of the language too. We've noticed that many movies use the Dakota/Lakota language, or at least parts of it. Watching Avatar, we recognized many Dakota/Lakota words and phrases.
