Opioid Response Program Seeks Lakota and Dakota Language Translators

RAPID CITY –The Great Plains Tribal Opioid Response program is preparing to release a third edition of its animated prevention series. It seeks Lakota and Dakota language speakers to help translate the material into both Lakota and Dakota.

Skyhawk Reborn and Bravefox, the first two releases in this series, covered the dangers of opioids and meth. The subject matter in the upcoming comic has not been made public, but “Battle of the Ancestors” will continue the saga.

This project, funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), consists of translating 36 lines in the 3rd version of our comic book series.  

Please provide the following pieces of information to: [email protected]  1) experience with translation, 2) samples of past work, 3) estimated time to complete the work, 4) cost of services to be rendered.

Funding Information: Funding for this project was made possible by award number 1H79TI085691-01 from SAMHSA.
