Bilingual Publication Launches in Keloland

It’s estimated that more than 20,000 people in South Dakota are of Hispanic origin and that number is expected to grow.  A publication in KELOLAND has spent the past two years reaching out to the Spanish-speaking community. Staff members are hoping their newest publication will help those efforts.

Anisavel Medina has never seen a newspaper that can be read in more ways than one, until Thursday.

“This is really fun,” Medina said.

Spanish-language readers know La Voz Hispana, also known as “The Hispanic Voice,” formerly as a newsletter and more recently as a magazine. Now, La Voz Hispana News is the first bilingual newspaper published in KELOLAND.

“We want to break the barrier that exists right now,” La Voz Hispana President Juan Bonilla said.

The publication features local government news, editorials and recipes. Each story is printed in both Spanish and English, side by side.  To read the full story click here.
