Why: This podcast is intended to create another platform for the Lakota language. It will serve to increase the exposure of authentic spoken Lakota to the ears of learners (which will result in increased vocabulary and familiarization with syntax and grammar), to encourage and inspire Lakota speakers to listen and speak our language more often, and to document and preserve Lakota language, thoughts, expressions, stories, histories, idioms and phrases.
