A variety of programs such as camps, clubs and classes exists to help Chickasaws of all ages learn the ancestral language. By fusing learning with excitement, these programs increase retention and spark a passion for sharing the language with others.
The Chickasaw Nation's Language Sports Camp is called "Himitta Alhiha' Hoochokoshkomo" which means "the youth are playing" in Chickasaw. The camp offers youths a unique way to learn the language based on the theory that children learn more when they're having fun. For more information, visit Chickasaw.net.
