Image from the film Rising Voices
Rising Voices (Hótȟaŋiŋpi) tells the story of a passionate, dedicated, and diverse group of people—members of the Lakota community and linguists from outside of the community, who are working together to save the Lakota language. Told through the voices of a wide range of Lakota people, who share their feelings about the myriad challenges facing their community, the film also incorporates four short films created by Lakota filmmakers and artists, each one giving a perspective on how finding one’s authentic “language” connects a person to a deeper sense of culture. This screening is sponsored by The Language Conservancy, which also co-produced the film. (HD Presentation)
