Blackfoot for Beginners. Books 1, 2, and 3.
The set of three workbooks is designed for Canadian introductory-level instruction in Blackfoot, an American Indian language. Each workbook is intended to provide basic understanding of language use and daily language functions. The first volume focuses on the Blackfoot oral tradition, alphabet, and phonology, and some basic daily living skills. The second workbook treats counting and numbers, concepts of animate and inanimate, and counting animate and inanimate things. The third addresses social conventions, body parts, kinship and the extended family, daily routine, foods, use of verbs, clothing, home furnishings, and animals, birds, insects, and plants. All three target vocabulary development and simple sentence structure, while incorporating some traditional Blackfoot themes. A teacher's guide is appended to each volume. (MSE)
