The Fort Belknap Community Economic Development Corporation (FBCEDC) was awarded a grant from the Administration for Native Americans- Esther Martinez Immersion Initiative (ANA-EMI). Life's Language Lodge is a Nakoda and Aaniiih language nest that is being developed to help our community restore our Aaniiih and Nakoda languages on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation. The main goal is to establish the language nest that will help fill a critical gap by providing language immersion for children 0-5 years of age.
