Hau Mitakuye pi!

Greetings my relatives!

Welcome to the Land of the Friendly People.

My Lakota name is [Wanbli Mayášleča] Hill Coyote Spotted Eagle. I'm going to pronounce the Dakhóta words. First I'll say them in English, then I'll give you the Dakhóta pronunciation. These are words you'll be seeing in the forest along the Circular Path. The first word is Spring Creek, Wétu čhana Wakpána, Weh-too cha-nah Wah kpah-nah. The next word is Circular Path, Okawiŋȟya Čhankú, Ohkah-ween-hheeyah Chank-oooh. The next one is Principal Path, Ithaŋčhaŋyaŋ Čhankú, Eetahn-chahn-yawn Chank-oooh.

Hau Mitakuye pi!

Pilamayaye!

Tókša akhé!

I thank you all for listening. I'll see you again.
