Using Our Collections

Tanyan Yahi!

We're happy to share the many examples reflecting woksape wounspe of Oglala Lakota College. You'll find images, scans of various forms of expression, audio files, and video clips. This project has been a few years in the making, as we assembled more digitized materials for OLC's 50th anniversary book. We are fortunate to have been gradually digitizing what we believe are of most value: the voices of Lakota speakers, educators, activists, and leaders. As we continue to add materials, please share with us your thoughts and ideas. We want to enable community-authored metadata and look forward to expanding upon the many stories of the Oglala oyanke and our relatives of the Oceti Sakowin.


For any visitors to the archives, we ask that you call ahead with your request so the staff can gather materials and/or resources for your visit.
