Wounspe – Lakota word for Learning
The Sinte Gleska University’s Main Campus and Lakeside Campus are busy gathering places for our students this Fall Semester 2019.
In our Lakota language Wounspe means learning. In the Lakota Way of Life we begin learning while nurtured in our mother’s womb, Ina is the Lakota word for mother. Ina talks, sings and prayers with her unborn child so learning – Wounspe begins and is a process to help us move forward in Life.
Knowledge is everywhere, we can acquire as individuals, within families, or in gathering with others in a classroom setting. The classroom setting is unique in that individuals are guided under instruction from teachers and from the other student’s interaction.
Kili – is the Lakota word for WOW. Kili, sums up the atmosphere surrounding students and teachers eager to learn and share knowledge.
Best wishes to all students, faculty and staff at Sinte Gleska Universtiy your hard work and team work will benefit many.
