Wednesday October 28th Mill City Museum http://www.mnhs.org/event/589


Rising Voices/Hótȟaŋiŋpi tells the story of a passionate, dedicated and diverse group of people – who are working together to save the Lakota language. 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 identity and 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 November 1, 2015 (check local listings).
