Wisconsin First Nations

Educators at a variety of levels may be interested in Wisconsin First Nations, a resource that provides "accurate and authentic educational materials for teaching about the American Indian Nations of Wisconsin." Visitors to this resource, which launched in December 2017, will find a well-organized collection of teaching and learning resources for students in grades pre-K - 12, as well as for educators themselves. These include lesson plans, videos, educational websites, a map of treaty lands and present-day tribal lands in Wisconsin, and suggestions for field trips and books. For teachers new to this topic, this resource also includes a series of five video exemplars featuring teachers who have successfully incorporated Native American studies into their classrooms. In addition to serving as a hub for educational resources about the state's tribal nations, Wisconsin First Nations was also created to aid teachers in complying with Wisconsin Education Act 31, which mandates classroom instruction on this topic in all school districts. Wisconsin First Nations was developed by a coalition of seven partners, including the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Education, WPT Education, and the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission (a multi-state agency of eleven Ojibwe tribes).
