Rosetta Stone Offers Chickasaw Language Free for Chickasaw Citizens

It goes without saying language and culture are both connected. To protect our languages is to protect our cultures, histories, and traditional knowledge. At the forefront of language revitalization initiatives is Rosetta Stone, who has already partnered with several Native communities across North America to help preserve their languages.

One of those communities is the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma, who Rosetta Stone worked with to develop software that teaches the Chikashshanompa’ language. Known as Rosetta Stone Chickasaw, the software is available completely free to Chickasaw citizens, and can be used by both children and adults. Developed in conjunction with native speakers, forty lessons are included that incorporate video, audio and still images that citizens can review at their own pace.

If you or someone you know is a Chickasaw citizen, follow the steps below to receive the software and begin learning:

  • Complete the pre-registration application here.
  • Once citizenship is verified, you will receive a welcome email.
  • When you receive this email, follow the instructions to complete your registration.
  • Begin using Rosetta Stone Chickasaw at www.chickasawlanguage.com.
