USD Hosts Free Showing of Film About Lakota Language
The Language Conservancy and Florentine Films/Hott Productions, with major funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, are sponsoring the 7 p.m.. showing at the Al Neuharth Media Center conference room.
Told through the voices of a wide range of Lakota people who share their feelings about their language and the myriad challenges facing their community, the film also incorporates four short films created for Rising Voices by Lakota filmmakers and artists, each one giving a perspective on how finding one’s authentic “language” connects a person to a deeper sense of culture. Rising Voices offers a snapshot into a day-to-day struggle of one of the biggest Native American nations and illuminates the devastating problem of ancestral language loss to Native American people.
Rising Voices is presented and distributed nationally by American Public Television (APT) and will premiere on public television stations nationwide beginning Nov. 1.
