    Rising Voices/Hothaninpi Before Christopher Columbus and his fellow Europeans arrived in North America, there were nearly 300 Native languages spoken north of Mexico. Today only half of those languages remain and experts say that by the year 2050, just 20 indigenous American languages will exist.
    This documentary is about how languages die - and how speaking them again can spark cultural and community restoration. It focuses on the Lakota (often called "Sioux") language and culture, the history that forced the language towards near extinction, and the challenges Lakota face today as they struggle to learn their ancestral language and teach it to their children. The film is a portrait of a culture in flux, focusing on the myriad conflicts around the disappearing language on the Lakota reservations of North and South Dakota.
    The Lakota nation is large, with more than 170, 000 tribal members, and that number is growing. Yet only 6000 people still speak Lakota, and the average age of its speakers will soon be 70 years old. Can the Lakota elders transmit the power of history and tradition, especially in the form of language, or will the heart and soul of their culture die with them?
    To examine this question, this program introduces viewers to a range of people, including the teachers working to save the language and the Lakota trying to learn their ancestral tongue. Woven through the documentary are also short first-person films made by Lakota filmmakers - stories that illustrate the strong connections the artists have between the Lakota language and their everyday lives.

    American War Stories: Vietnam [#103] Drawdown Drawdown looks at the "Vietnamization" of the war--the eventual decision by the United States to turn the war over to South Vietnam--allowing the gradual return of American troops home. This hour focuses on the real costs of war, including the broken bodies and spirits that are the inevitable result of conflict. Veterans recount what it was like coming home to a divided nation, when protestors blamed the warrior for the war. Two prisoners of war share how they successfully survived years at the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" prison camp. Drawdown also highlights the wonderful rescue of thousands of babies from Saigon orphanages, dubbed "Operation Babylift", as South Vietnam began to fall to the Communists. The hour ends with some powerful reflections by Vietnam veterans who describe how profoundly the war affected their lives and discuss how not all the effects were bad. duration 56:47   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    LaDonna Harris: Indian 101 This documentary profiles Comanche activist LaDonna Harris, who led an extensive life of political and social activism. Her national work began when President Lyndon Johnson tapped her to educate the executive and legislative branches on the unique role of American Indian Tribes and their relationship to the US government. The course was called "Indian 101" and was taught to members of Congress and other agencies for more than 35 years. In addition to her work in civil rights, world peace, the environment and women's rights, Harris is best known for introducing landmark legislation, such as land return claims to the Taos Pueblo Tribe and Native tribes of Alaska, as well as returning federal recognition for the Menominee Tribe. Produced by independent filmmaker Julieanna Brannum. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
