Lakota Berenstain Bears 'Trouble With Money'

ICTMN Staff
12/11/11

Every week ICTMN is posting a different episode of the Lakota language version of Berenstain Bears, or Mat?ó Waú?šila Thiwáhe—The Compassionate Bear Family. While it is a children's cartoon, the goal of recreating this well-known show in Lakota is to help revitalize the language, so adults can brush up on their Lakota, or learn the language with their children.

In this episode, when Mama and Papa refuse to buy the cubs trendy, expensive shirts they decide to get jobs to buy the shirts themselves. Brother and Sister get so caught up in earning money that they have no time for their friends. In the end, they learn that material possessions aren't worth friendships.
