Berenstain Bears in Lakota

The Lakota Language Consortium (LLC) spent about a year dubbing episodes of The Berenstain Bears in Lakota, translating the title as Mathó Waúnšila Thiwáhe (The Compassionate Bear Family), with LLC board member Ben Black Bear (Rosebud Lakota) as the voice of Papa Bear. You can catch preview screenings on:

• September 7th at the Tribal Leaders’ Summit Banquet, during the 42nd Annual United Tribes Powwow in Bismarck, ND.

• September 9th during Children’s Day

Starting September 11th at 9:00 AM, two episodes per week will air on the South Dakota Public Broadcasting (SDPB) digital channel 3 and Prairie Public Television digital channel 4, ending in November. Local access stations KOLC (Oglala Lakota College) and REZ IPTV will broadcast the show to viewers on the Pine Ridge and Cheyenne River reservations will stream episodes online.

A DVD of the episodes will be released in November.

Those involved and supporters will be recognized at an honoring ceremony held at the Grand Entry on September 8th, with dancers dressed as bears.

    I don’t create a ton of remarks, but i did a few searching and wound up here SAIVUS Blog » Berenstain Bears in Lakota. And I actually do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be just me or does it seem like a few of the comments come across like they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  7. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me
    to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer
    to create your theme? Fantastic work!
