Great news for everyone who didn’t get a chance to catch Rising Voices/Hótȟaŋiŋpi during its broadcasts in November 2015 –
the film is now available for public streaming on YouTube for free!
Our sister organization, The Language Conservancy, and partner Florentine Films/Hott Productions are proud to share the film with all the language warriors across the country (and beyond), working to preserve and revitalize their languages. We hope that this film will bring communities together, and inspire YOU to learn, teach or create resources for an endangered language, especially Lakota. We hope it inspires you to become part of the growing movement to preserve a part of America’s cultural heritage.
Although the film is now available for streaming, we are continuing to arrange public screenings at libraries, schools, universities and museums all over the country. The screenings are often followed by a discussion and/or a Q&A with Producer Lawrence Hott and Executive Producer Wilhelm Meya. Get in touch with us if you would like to bring this film to your community. Our updated screenings page can be found at this link. DVDs are still available for purchase here.
You can watch the film at the link below. Don’t forget to share this news with your friends and family!
We thank the sponsors that made this project possible: Vision Maker Media, the National Endowment for the Humanities, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Administration for Native Americans, the Dakota Indian Foundation, the South Dakota Humanities Council, and the North Dakota Humanities Council.
