With a small grant received from the WKK Foundation, DLTA embarked on a Dine language revitalization pilot project using the Mentor-Apprentice Program (MAP) approach for adult and young adult Dine people. The project utilizes a natural but structured approach to learning or increasing fluency in the heritage language in the home and community through one-on-one in-person or distance sessions. We will introduce MAP using a power point presentation including video clips of actual sessions, sharing our adventures and pitfalls during two pilot stages.
