Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) recently premiered the first three parts of the Tribal Histories project, which over the next two years, will share the history and traditions of all of the state’s American Indian tribes and bands.

In the first three programs, tribal members share their nation’s oral traditions with David Grignon from the Menominee Nation, Randy Cornelius from the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin and Jim Thunder and Mike Alloway Sr. from the Forest County Potawatomi. At the following link (http://wptschedule.org/bemoretunedin/watch-tribal-histories-on-air-and-online/), you can watch all three currently available programs online.

Programs featuring the eight other sovereign nations located within Wisconsin’s modern boundaries and the Brothertown Indian Nation, whose sovereign status is no longer recognized by the federal government, will air on WPT in the next couple years.

WPT’s Tribal Histories project is part of Wisconsin’s Act 31 Initiative to provide educational materials about American Indians in Wisconsin to the state’s schools of education and K-12 teachers.
