I LOVE THIS
We do not say stuff like “good morning, good day,” as a greeting, here. Every day is good.
Tóḳed aniyaηpa he? How does the dawn greet you?
Tóḳed yauη he? How are you?
Taηyeḥ wauη! I am great.
Óc̣iciye kte! I will help you.
Ómakiya! / Ómakiya wo! (wo is male.)
Tokṡta aḳe! short for Tokṡta aḳe waηc̣iyake kte! Surely I will see you again.
Tokṡta haḥ’aηna! Surely tomorrow!
Wótewahda! I am hungry!
Wod uηyapta he? Are we all gonna go eat?
Wac̣euηkiye kte. You and I should pray.
Native Filmmakers Shoot Dystopian Drama on Pine Ridge Reservation
It’s 2085 on Pine Ridge. The reservation has been quarantined and borders guarded by the military for 30 years. Sparked by the ramifications of the Keystone XL pipeline, the war between the government and the insurgency lasted for eight years and resulted in the dystopian setting that provides the background for "The People," the inaugural project from Indigene Studios.
Based out of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Indigene Studios was co-founded in April 2014 by Willi White, Oglala Lakota, and Angel White Eyes, Oglala Lakota and Ojibwa.
“This is our way of giving back to our communities but also expressing ourselves,” White said. “Non-Natives always come here and sell the same narrative to the mainstream media. We want to change that narrative and give a voice to the stories that are already here.”
“Gitigaan” (garden) … Ojibwe language flashcards I made for my reservations community garden program a few summers ago.

I redid it in color. Black children are denied their innocence and childhood, even in death.
