The Lakota language is a Native American language that is near extinction. In this audacious talk, Peter Hill shares his journey of saving the Lakota language through Lakota Immersion Childcare, also known as Iyápi Glukínipi.

Peter Hill was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, but has been living and working on the Pine Ridge Reservation for nearly 15 years. He became fluent in the Lakota language during his time on the reservation, and eventually became a Lakota language teacher

In the fall of 2012, Peter started Lakota Immersion Childcare, also known as Iyápi Glukínipi. The program has begun creating and disseminating large quantities of Lakota language children’s books and multimedia materials.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
