The UNL Omaha language class is sponsoring a hand game and dinner at 6 p.m., Nov. 19 in the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center. The hand game is a guessing game, which consists of one team trying to win four games to win the match. The dinner follows the end of the match.
The UNL Omaha language class is housed in the Department of Anthropology-Geography and is supported by the Institute for Ethnic Studies and the Native American Studies Program. The Omaha Language Curriculum Development Project is an on-going effort by the UNL Omaha language instruction team and students to create materials for learners of Omaha where ever they may be. There are multiple components to the project including the creation of bilingual readers, revisions and expansion of an Omaha dictionary, compilation of a textbook, and the creation of on-line and audio material.
The hand game and dinner are co-sponsored by OASIS, the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Anthropology, the Institute for Ethnic Studies and the Native American Studies Program.
