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 gets entrepreneurial and opens a quilt shop, the cubs and Papa don’t know how they will manage around the house without her. It’s only when they stop being selfish and start considering Mama and her new business that they band together to share the load and make it work.
