The future survival of Sioux languages like Lakota, Nakota, and Dakota is uncertain. A group on the Lake Traverse Reservation is working to ensure its language will be alive and well. A special Scrabble game in the Sioux language has been developed. The game is part of the tribe's campaign to revitalize the Dakota Language.
