Northern Arapahoe Schools have launched an iPad application that will help teach both children and teachers the Arapahoe language.
Currently only one percent of Northern Arapaho members speak their language fluently. To grow that number, last May schools gave students in Pre-K through 12th grade 450 iPads installed with a new app that teaches the Arapaho Language.
“In our language, our words are strong, they are powerful,” said Wayne C’Hair, an Arapaho elder.
“Sometimes it takes four English words to make one Arapaho word.”
