Sioux Literature in Translation: A Planning Project

Planning and development of an edition and translation to English of Lakota and Dakota literature, including songs, stories, letters and epics, from the earliest known to modern times. (12 months)

AIHEC proposes to create a detailed plan for developing an anthology of Siouan literature in translation in the series of Native Literatures of the Americas published by the University of Nebraska Press. This would be the first work to present a comprehensive literary landscape in Lakota/Dakota languages from the earliest known to modern times. The project involves engagement of the language communities in identification of texts for translation and the presentation of their cultural context.
