After searching libraries, the net, and schools for an accurate, good Dakota dictionary, I finally found this book. I was, to be blunt, amazed! Not only does it have a great listing of words (that you can actually use), but it also includes a short introduction of grammar and usage.
I got to test my new skills at a recent Powwow in Minnesota, where I had an entire conversation (although slow!) with a Dakota man. Although he needed to correct me on a few words and some grammar, he was impressed. He was shocked when I told him I had only begun learning within the last six months! I could not have done it without the aid of this book! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I am Lakota on my father side and Dakota on my mother side. My mother finds the Dakota words in this dictionary puzzling, she doesn't recognize many of them.

This english dakota dictionary by john p. williamson is a great guide to understanding how the language was gathered in the early days of the missionary people who wanted to work with the dakotah people.

This dictionary has been great to learn more of the Dakota language. We like learning more words all the time, as we live very near a Reservation. I've always loved learning about Native culture, so it's fun to be able to learn some of the language too. We've noticed that many movies use the Dakota/Lakota language, or at least parts of it. Watching Avatar, we recognized many Dakota/Lakota words and phrases.

Format: Paperback
This dictionary is really outdated. The words were collected more than a century ago and not in a very reliable fashion. And the writing system doesn't allow you to learn the pronunciation of words. If you want a really reliable reference to the Dakota get the New Lakota Dictionary, it includes Dakota variants for all Lakota words in it.
