Lakota is an original Native American language that elders on some South Dakota reservations speak today. There are efforts in a number of places around the country to preserve the language.

It’s a vocabulary lesson for a group of young students. 

They’re part of the Lakota Immersion Childcare program on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Here, all the learning is done in Lakota.
