This Lakota language book/cd is designed for parents to easily help teach their children to speak two simple conversational phrases a week. We hope that parents will learn at the same time so that they can replace these English sentences with Lakota ones in everyday life.
This program is not designed to teach the reading and writing of the language. By the end of the three year program that our books and CD's are designed for, your child will know over 200 sentences - a good foundation for learning the Lakota language. Remember a language is kept alive by speaking it each day. ~Wiyakpa Luta Waste Win Lakota is an Oratorical society. The language is not so much kept by reading and writing Lakota, it is kept alive by speaking it to each other in everyday settings. If we truly hope to save the Lakota culture, we must save the language. Language is what formulates how one sees the world. It is the foundation of any culture. ~Zintkala Oyate
