Oral History project explores Lakota life before European contact

This excerpt is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

The Heart of All Lakota Oral History project is an audio series developed by Little Wound School with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The project aims to preserve the oral traditions of the Lakota people and preserve the stories of elders in the community.

A new episode, titled Buffalo Nation: Before Contact is out now. In this clip, you'll hear from Richard Two Dogs, an elder and spiritual leader from the Porcupine community. He explains how values and spiritually were an important part of Lakota society.

News episodes of the Heart of All Lakota Oral History Project air Wednesdays on KILI Radio. You can listen to this week's full episode on your favorite streaming service
