Summary

Native People of Wisconsinintroduces students to the twelve Indian nations that live in Wisconsin, and incorporates various ways Native people remember the past, emphasizing the value of oral tradition. Chapters devoted to each Wisconsin Indian Nationthe Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Potawatomi, Oneida, Mohican, Brothertown, and six Bands of Ojibwehave three main topics: tribal traditions, tribal history, and tribal life today. This structure will help young readers learn the unique history of each Nation, the ways that the Nations differ from one another, the commonalities among the groups, and those values Native people share with non-Indians. New Badger History Reader Distributed for the Wisconsin Historical Society Press
