The most complete and up-to-date dictionary of Lakota available, this new edition of Eugene Buechel's classic dictionary contains over thirty thousand entries and will serve as an essential resource for everyone interested in preserving, speaking, and writing the Lakota language today.

This new comprehensive edition has been reorganized to follow a standard dictionary format and offers a range of useful features: both Lakota-to-English and English-to-Lakota sections; the grouping of principal parts of verbs; the translation of all examples of Lakota word usage; the syllabification of each entry word, followed by its pronunciation; and a lucid overview of Lakota grammar.

This monumental new edition celebrates the vitality of the Lakota language today and will be a valuable resource for students and teachers alike.

Eugene Buechel, S.J., (1874–1954) spent much of his life working among the Lakotas and recording their words and stories. He is the author of Lakota Tales and Text in Translation. Paul Manhart, S.J., is a pastoral assistant at Red Cloud Indian School in Pine Ridge, South Dakota.
