0075D/DU - American Indian Studies Summer Institute

Registration for this Event is Closed

Course Description:

In partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction American Indian Studies Program, the Stockbridge-Munsee Community Band of Mohican Indians, and the First Nations Studies Program and Professional Program in Education Center for First Nations Studies at UW-Green Bay

The American Indian Studies Summer Institute (AISSI) is an active, highly participatory, week-long workshop/course designed to increase participants’ understanding of issues related to the history, culture, and tribal sovereignty of the federally recognized tribes and bands in Wisconsin. Our goals relate to both American Indian studies and the education of American Indian students. This event aims to improve teaching and learning and to enrich student services so that they may become more culturally responsive. Participants will learn how to adapt or develop new techniques best suited to their unique circumstances.

Classroom sessions use a variety of teaching methods and provide opportunities for both presenters and participants to share information, resources, best practices, and model programs. A field trip and other sessions outside the classroom provide opportunities for experiential learning. Rich discussions allow everyone to share their insights and reactions. Perhaps most importantly, participants will have the opportunity to work in small groups to develop an action plan to teach others what they have learned. Events will include a celebration of the relationships we have made and the things we have learned with a traditional feast and cultural activities.

Who Should Attend? Anyone with a personal or professional interest in American Indian studies and/or American Indian education is welcome to attend. This event also meets licensing requirements for educators trained outside Wisconsin.
