Annual Wisconsin American Indian Studies Summer Institute

July 29, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - August 2, 2019 @ 1:00 pm

The annual Wisconsin American Indian Studies Summer Institute is an active, highly participatory, week-long workshop designed to increase participants’ understanding of issues related to the history, culture, and tribal sovereignty of the eleven federally-recognized American Indian nations and tribal communities in Wisconsin.

The goals of the summer institute relate to both American Indian Studies and the education of Native American students. The summer institute aims to improve teaching and learning and to enrich student services, resulting in becoming more culturally responsive. Participants will learn how to adapt or develop new techniques best suited to their unique circumstances.

Anyone with a personal or professional interest in American Indian Studies and/or Native American education is welcome to attend.

The registration fee is $250 per person if registered by Monday, June 17, 2019, or $325 if registration is received by Monday, July 15, 2019 and $400 onsite.

Discounted group rates are also available. Contact Jonas Meyer at jonas.meyer@dpi.wi.gov if you have three or more people registering from the same district or organization to receive the discount code.

Due to the nature of this event, registrations for only a portion of the summer institute are not available. Space is limited, so please register early.
