    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The Berenstain Bears cartoon characters will soon be helping bring the Lakota language to life in homes across the region.

    Twenty episodes of the animated series will be translated into Lakota and broadcast on South Dakota Public Television starting in the fall of 2011.

    Lakota Language Consortium director Wilhelm Meya says it's the first time in the United States that a cartoon series has been translated to a native language and widely distributed.

    The consortium partnered with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to co-produce the series. A DVD and teacher's guide also will be released next summer for schools.

    Meya says less than 10 percent of the 125,000 Lakota people in the region, primarily in South Dakota and North Dakota, speak the language. The goal is to use the modern cartoon as an educational tool.
