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.

Following the 1973 occupation of wounded knee, there were conversations over what sort of support the federal government should give to reservation schools.

In a new episode of the oral history project, educational administrator John Haas and former Oglala Sioux Tribe President Bryan Brewer talk about changes in education, and how schools often had to cut corners with their budget.

New episodes of the Oral History project air Wednesdays on KILI Radio. Episode 6 Part 1 - A New Day : Education to Repatriation" is available now on streaming services.
