|This is a Wikipedia project to be written in Lakota. If you know the language, feel free to start writing articles about anything. To the left are some suggestions as to articles to be written. To create an article, click on its red-link. If you do not see a red link for the article you would like to create, enter the name of the article after "Wp/lkt/" in the Oyúblaye waŋží káǧa yo input box to the left and click the button underneath it.
If you are a native speaker of Lakota we would very much appreciate your input in creating new articles or help with editing. Native speakers can use any spelling system they are used to. Second language learners are expected to use the orthography introduced in the New Lakota Dictionary (NLD). This orthography as chosen as the standard for the Wikipedia as it is used by the majority of schools in Lakota country. If you are a fluent speaker and do not know how to type this orthography or prefer using the simplified spelling, feel free to type texts in the way you are used to. Other users of the language will gradually help with converting the texts into consistent spelling, alternatively we can keep both spellings in each article for some time. The SLO is described here. Also visit www.lakotadictionary.org for more information on how to write Lakota.
Also notice that Lakota still lacks a lot of words for modern civilisation, so it’s recommended to start writing about subjects that do not need special vocabulary, things of everyday life or traditional Lakota subjects, etc.
