“I’m a donor to St. Joseph’s Indian School. I want to express my personal appreciation that this forgotten culture of people are regenerating their actual spoken language. Like the Cheyenne and Crow in Montana, they are conducting an educational strategy in reconnecting with their spoken language. It’s great to see this all happening.” ~ D. Standing Crow via Facebook
