Want to learn a Native American language? This short course will give you a chance to begin speaking Lakota. Since you already speak one language, this new language will be considerably easier…if you are willing to speak the new language rather than learn about it. English translations will not be used in the teaching. Bernice Catches, native Lakota speaker, has taught Lakota for many years and participated in training Native speakers around the country in this active language teaching approach. Students may try out the first session (May 26) for free – it is necessary to register for the free session as room capacity is limited.

This four-week, guided writing class is modeled on the functions of the four chambers of the heart. Two sessions emphasize writing that the heart needs to release, just as the heart itself pushes out what it doesn’t need, carbon dioxide. Two sessions will connect with the heart and bring forward the stories it wants to tell, like the life-sustaining role of the corresponding two chambers that pump life into the body. Participants should come to class with openness to allowing stories to evolve from the heart and not the head.
