Traditionally, Lakota did not measure time with a clock.  References to hours in a day come from contact with European immigrants.

Mázaškaƞškaƞ tóna hwo/he?*  What time is it?  (Mázaškaƞškaƞ- metal that moves).

Owápȟe waƞží It is one o’clock (ápȟe- to strike)

*hwo is a verbal question mark used by males.  Females say “he” for verbal question mark.
