Not English. Reply Lunatic4Bizcas says: January 21, 2015 at 12:13 am This is an awesome curriculum. Original American languages should be taught. Language for any group of people around the world, but especially the language of ones ancestors is the essence of their being. Reply Niombre Raven says: March 23, 2015 at 2:33 am I wish I was able to learn it but I have to full blooded and I'm not. I'm mixed. I wouldn't be allowed…. As I wasn't able to join powwows even with a sponsor that was native american. Reply californiaborn71 says: June 30, 2015 at 5:53 am I am not native american at all to my knowledge. I am born and raised in Southern California all my life. I would think that if they want their native tongue to survive they would have to teach it to people like myself who take interest in the first tongues of America. It is the only way to make it grow. Reply rebel oneal says: July 1, 2015 at 5:57 pm that breaks my red earth heart they have to be taught Lakota..Father thank you for my nation's tongue.. Reply DirtyHarry G says: August 15, 2015 at 10:48 am I don't get it. I am not native born, I came from Central America and my first language was Spanish, it's what was spoken at home. I learned English as I made friends, watched TV and went to school. Now I'm bilingual. Why aren't these kids taught Lakota at home and then learn English as they grow, then they too can be bilingual. They can communicate with the outside world and still retain their culture and heritage…and language.

I am wanting to learn this and teach my son's I am planning a trip to visit the res and meet the people but I want us to know how to speak this language before we do Reply KryptikGhost says: February 20, 2016 at 3:12 am I can't begin to express how much this means to me. I have recently made a friend who grew up with both the Cherokee and Lakota Sioux, and I want to surprise her by saying to her "Thechihila yelo". I'd like to one day share a conversation with her in Lakota. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.
