Collection Scope and Contents: The materials in this collection are from the Sauk Language Program, located in Stroud, Oklahoma. The program serves to revitalize and integrate the Sauk language back into the daily lives of the Sauk people, producing stories, games, videos and educational resources to assist in supporting their mission to teach the language.
Sauk is one of several dozen languages in the Algonquian language family and is closely related to the Meskwaki dialect and Kickapoo language. Sauk was once spoken in areas of present day Kansas, Illinois and Michigan. Today it is still the traditional language used by a decreasing number of elder speakers of the Sac and Fox of Oklahoma.
