Sinte Gleska University features this video on its Spotlight on Lakota Studies page, and we thought it was worth highlighting.

Laura Black TomaHawk’s message about education is no less relevant today than it was when she spoke at Sinte Gleska University.

She talks about the importance of education for the Lakota people and how things were when she went to school—it was a boarding school then. She talks about how the younger generation needs to pay attention and learn all they can to succeed.
