The KiowaTalk.org website offers over 250 videos of Kiowa elder Dorothy Whitehorse DeLaune sharing words, phrases, and sentences in the Kiowa language. Ms. DeLaune has worked for many years with tribal members and Native Studies scholars to sustain the Kiowa language, culture and history. The website also contains videos of Ms. DeLaune telling stories and singing songs.
The KiowaTalk.org website utilizes digital technology to offer a new way to sustain Kiowa culture, reach broader audiences of Kiowa tribal members, and anyone else who is interested in learning.
