#realNDNtalk – Children’s Songs Sung in Jicarilla Apache

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown March 17th, 2015 Last Updated on: March 17th, 2015

Back in January we talked about one girl's challenge to herself, learning one new sentence in Jicarilla Apache each week. Ada Claire hoped that everyone else would join in on the fun with her. Have you accepted the #realNDNtalk challenge?

In honor of her 10th week with the project, she has translated “Head, Shoulders, Knees, Toes” and “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” into Jicarilla Apache. Watch the video below and you can listen and read along with the lyrics.
