Every week ICTMN is posting a different episode of the Lakota language version of Berenstain Bears, or Mat?ó Waú?šila Thiwáhe—The Compassionate Bear Family. While it is a children's cartoon, the goal of recreating this well-known show in Lakota is to help revitalize the language, so adults can brush up on their Lakota, or learn the language with their children.

In this episode, because Brother is convinced he doesn't have any talent to offer he is recruited as the talent scout. In his position he helps all the cubs discover their talent, himself included.
