Dakhóta Iápi Okhódakičhiye

Dakhóta Iápi Okhódakičhiye (DIO) was created out of an international need for language materials to be implemented for language learning in the home, community and classroom. There are currently more second language learners than first speakers of Dakhóta. The coming generations need the Dakhóta language. DIO creates language materials and events that are designed to serve the existing seventeen Dakhóta nations located within five states, two Canadian provinces, the substantial urban community, as well as a growing amount of individual interest in learning to speak and revitalize the Dakhóta language.
