Established as an educational nonprofit in 2004, the Lakota Language Consortium achieves its mission by providing urgently needed revitalization services for Lakota students and teachers through the creation of language education materials, Lakota language media, and intensive teacher trainings and workshops such as the Lakota Summer Institute. LLC also works to educate the public on the problem of language loss and helps the Lakota community find grants and support necessary to maintain their language programs.
