The 10th annual Lakota Summer Institute will be held June 6 to 24 at Sitting Bull College in Fort Yates, North Dakota.

“For me, this was a spiritual journey which I will never forget,” Rick Williams, a 2015 LSI participant, told the Tribal College Journal.

Hundreds of Lakota learners and educators have attended LSI in the past.

Alli Moran is a three-year LSI attendant who practices Lakota at home. “When I was 10 everything began to come together. I began to understand what it means being a Native woman and the importance of Lakota language and culture… I love it here. I love seeing everyone come together and we all have a common cause, which is to learn and speak the language.”

Alli Moran has attended the Lakota Summer Institute three times.
