The first native Lakota speaker to publish a Lakota textbook and glossary, Mr. White Hat was considered an activist for traditional ways of living, according to his daughter, Emily White Hat. He created an orthography for the language, which he had taught since 1975, and was head of the Lakota Studies Department at Sinte Gleska University on the Rosebud Indian Reservation.
