      Summary

      "So many of the children in this classroom are Ho-Chunk, and it brings history alive to them and makes it clear to the rest of us too that this isn’t just ... Natives riding on horseback. There are still Natives in our society today, and we’re working together and living side by side. So we need to learn about their ways as well.” --Amy Laundrie, former Lake Delton Elementary School 4th grade teacher

      An essential title for the upper elementary classroom, Native People of Wisconsin fills the need for accurate and authentic teaching materials about Wisconsin’s Indian Nations. Based on her research for her award-winning title for adults, Indian Nations of Wisconsin: Histories of Endurance and Survival, author Patty Loew has tailored this book specifically for young readers.

      Native People of Wisconsin tells the stories of the twelve Native Nations in Wisconsin, including the Native people’s incredible resilience despite rapid change and the impact of European arrivals on Native culture. Young readers will become familiar with the unique cultural traditions, tribal history, and life today for each nation.

      Complete with maps, illustrations, and a detailed glossary of terms, this edition includes two chapters on the Brothertown Indian Nation and urban Indians, as well as updates on each tribe’s current history and new profiles of outstanding young people from every nation.
