N.D. tribe working to preserve Hidatsa language
Thursday, September 18, 2003

Educators on the Fort Berthold Reservation in North Dakota are hoping to revive the Hidatsa language.

Only about 100 to 150 still speak the language. Educators are using what is called the Total Physical Response program to teach younger members the language.

The reservation is home to the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara tribes.
