Congratulations to Crow Language Consortium Board Member, Dr. Janine Pease! The Governor’s Humanities Awards have recognized Dr. Pease for her significant contributions to the public humanities as an educator and advocate.
Learn more about Dr. Pease's significant contributions. 

In late September Lakota country lost Elder and Native speaker Marie Randall, Sičháŋǧu Lakota at the age of 101. She was an Uŋči to many in Lakota Country where her legacy carries on.  She will be remembered for her advocacy for a variety of issues such as Tribal Sovereignty and language learning, education, and preservation. We send our deepest condolences to her family and friends.

Her strength and encouragement are here in her own voice. She shared this message with the LLC while reflecting on advice from her grandmother who passed when Marie Randall was a young girl.
"My grandmother would always say this: 'You are Lakota. Always remember that. Whatever hinders you and you fall down and you hurt, just stand up.' No, I am Lakota so I will be strong. And I will walk. And now I am in my 98th year. And I always remember those members of our family and I do my best to never forget the Lakota language."

You can hear her words in Lakota in this video

Rising Voices/Hótȟaŋiŋpi tells the story of a powerful threat to Native culture. This threat is an insidious, impersonal villain, one that comes through TV sets and social media sites - the English language. The victim is seemingly the Lakota language itself. All sales support development of new language learning materials.
