Tribal Histories | Wisconsin Public Television (WPT)

Recorded in the natural settings of the regions that native people have called home for centuries, these films feature tribal members sharing the challenges, triumphs and time-honored traditions that have shaped their vibrant communities across generations.

WPT's Tribal Histories project is part of American Indian Studies and Wisconsin Act 31 Initiative to provide educational resources for teaching and learning of Wisconsin’s American Indian nations and tribal communities.
