Diane Tells His Name is Lakota and her family is of the Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota, but Diane didn’t know any of this until she was an adult and learned that she had been adopted.

She spoke with her daughter Bonnie Buchanan at StoryCorps.


This conversation was recorded at the San Francisco StoryBooth. For more information or to make an appointment click here.

Originally aired January 11, 2013, on NPR’s Morning Edition.
