A day at Wakinyantuwan Tiwahe:





Wakinyantuwan Tiwahe Lakota Ponies:




Visit with Vernell, a very fluent Lakota Speaker,

 and learn some of the history, culture, traditions and some language.

Vernell was born in the early 50's and raised by his grandparents in a

very traditonal, non-English speaking home.


With a Bachelor's degree in Indian Studies and Tribal Law he has taught

Junior High, High School and College. As an invited gues speaker at many

universities and  high schools around the country and abroad

he shares a wealth of knowledge growing up in a traditional realm.
