A Basic Guide in Tri-Lingual Education in Gros Ventre and Assiniboine.
Hays/Lodge Pole Public Schools, Hays, MT.
This curriculum was written to give American Indian children an appreciation of Native American culture and two oral languages, Gros Ventre and Assiniboine. It is intended to create a comfortable cultural atmosphere while teaching K-4 children to say some words in their native language. The major content objective is to give children a repertoire of Indian words that will enhance their appreciation for Indian language and culture, resulting in a better self-image. The curriculum focuses on the past by reporting on traditional Indian home life, ways of gathering food, games, and roles of family members. The curriculum includes vocabulary lessons on numbers, colors, animals, seasons, clothing, and food. There are also units offering Indian history, stories, games, sign language, education, and role playing. Numerous black and white drawings illustrate the text and the vocabulary. The guide includes lesson plans, a 27-item reference list, and a 7-page vocabulary list. (TE)
