ON THE COVER: Exact translations are sometimes difficult in Native languages. However, approximate translations were made of “the pattern of language “into Lakota and Ojibwe.
The Lakota phrase, provided by Sinte Gleska University Lakota Studies Chair Albert White Hat, translates as “these spoken languages are different from each other.”
The Ojibwe translation, provided by Elma Wilkie and Jimmy Greatwalker of Turtle Mountain College, means the speaking of Ojibwe.
