Rising Voices/Hóthaŋiŋpi

Rising Voices/Hóthaŋiŋpi (directors Lawrence Hott and Diane Garey). This hour-long documentary braids together the current struggles of Lakota to learn their tribal language, the historical attempt by the United State to annihilate the language, the rise of immersion language schools, and the participation of outsiders in the rescue of the Lakota language. Short films about the culture, created by Lakota filmmakers and artists, are interwoven with the history to present a multi-faceted picture of the revitalization of the Lakota language. (Florentine Films/Hott Productions and Vision Maker Media, 2015, 57 min.) In English and Lakota with English subtitles.

Closed captioned. A sign language interpreter will be provided upon request for the film discussion - three business days’ notice requested. Contact SignLanguageServices@denvergov.org.

Denver American Indian Commissioner Kimimila Locke (Lakota and Ahtna Dine) will lead a discussion with the audience following the film. Kimimila currently teaches Lakota within the Denver Public School System.
