The Heart of All 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.

In a new episode, Ernie LaPointe reflects on the battle of Greasy Grass, also called the battle of the Little Bighorn. LaPoine is the great-grandson of Sitting Bull. He tells the story of how his ancestors felt following the battle.

News episodes of audio series air Wednesdays on KILI Radio. Episodes are available for streaming every Friday.
