North Dakota

The collections of the American Folklife Center contain rich holdings of Native American materials, including unique recordings from North Dakota of Mandan and Hidatsa tribal songs, and Lakota songs recorded at Nishu, Standing Rock, and other Siouan communities. In 1982, the Center's field project Ethnic Heritage and Language Schools Project documented a Russian-German school in Strasburg.
