An Address on Native American Culture

ICTMN Staff
11/15/11

A University of Wisconsin Oshkosh student discusses the need for curriculum that focuses on Native American culture on UW campuses. He notes the many stereotypical questions he has received from other students including if he lived in a tipi and if he could do a rain dance. There are 13 four-year UW campuses across the state, the speaker notes his surprise that only four offer Native American studies programs.

Your presentation was articulate, intelligent, and well done. As a graduate of UWM, I was appalled to learn that it was only 1 of 4 in the entire UW system. The need for Native American cultural programs is way over due, not only in Wisconsin, but nationwide. Good luck in pursuing the goal. W J Knapp, History Major and Native American researcher.
