Rick Orton 608-271-9219

Course members will explore the archaeology, history, culture, governance, values and issues of concern of Native People in Wisconsin. An awareness and understanding of past and present will allow course members to appreciate Native People as they are today, their “world view”, and the forces and challenges overcome that brought them to the current point in history. The course will rely on readings, videos, a field trip and lectures by and discussions with Native presenters.

There are required readings.

Other materials may be recommended as the course progresses.
