New website helps educators teach about American Indian nations

A new website, WisconsinAct31.org, is helping educators throughout the state teach students from kindergarten through high school about Wisconsin’s American Indian nations. This project was led by the School of Education’s Aaron Bird Bear and Simone Schweber -- with significant help from partners across the state. Wisconsin Act 31 is the term for the five state statutes that require schools to teach American Indian Studies throughout a student's career and maintain instructional materials that appropriately reflect diverse cultures.
