Posted By Toyacoyah Brown March 24th, 2015 Last Updated on: March 24th, 2015

Spring is on everyone's mind, especially those of us that just got a fresh snowstorm in the Midwest and Northeast. Boo! But soon we will be saying things like, “It's raining!” or “It's warm!” and the Cheyenne and Arapaho Television station (CATV47) is here to help us say these phrases in Arapaho!

An important one in any language, Let's Eat!

Basic greeting and goodbye

Introducing yourself

Weather in the Fall

The Let's Learn videos are meant to introduce basic Cheyenne and Arapaho language to young tribal members ages three-year-old to seven-year-old, but don’t be shy if you’re an adult! It’s never too late to learn a new language.

And for the adults, there is the Basic Arapaho program, which is a 28 minute instructional video filmed with students in a classroom setting. In this video, instructor/host Billie Sutton presents an overview of the Arapaho alphabet.

I hope this post has inspired you to learn more! For more help with the Arapaho language, please visit http://www.catv47.com/learn-arapaho.html and http://calanguage.com/.
