What is Saad Kʼidilyé?
Saad K’idilyé’s goal is to establish a Diné language immersion nest in Albuquerque, NM. The immersion nest aims to provide a culturally rich, Diné language immersive environment with approaches rooted in Diné knowledge. We will focus on working with prenatal mothers, infants, and toddlers under the age of four years.
Our organizational project and fiscal sponsor is NISN, the NACA-Inspired Schools Network.
Saad K’idilyé is grounded in the Diné way of life using the stories and teachings of the cornfield as it pertains to child growth and development with the mountains and hogan applied as thinking and planning tools to root, guide, and design language and holistic learning for our relatives, mothers, fathers, and children in planting the language for future generations.
