Two South Dakota Mines researchers explore how the fertilizers we use could be healthier, more sustainable and more efficient. We learn about the biofertilizer project that earned a $4 million National Science Foundation award.

The new documentary "Oyate Woyaka" invites viewers to consider the power of language. We talk about the impacts of the Lakota language on Lakota history, culture and spirituality.
