The story of this place we now call UW-Madison spans many thousands of years. Recent research has illuminated that the southern shoreline of Waaksikhomik (Lake Mendota) in Teejop (Four Lakes), now part of UW-Madison, features 11 architectural earthwork mound sites dating back 2,500 years and at least 25 human habitation sites dating back 12,000 years.

Aaron Bird Bear leading a tourJoin the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE) for a walking tour of American Indian landmarks on the UW-Madison campus, led by Aaron Bird Bear and Omar Poler. Starting at Memorial Union, we will walk about a mile to Dejope (Teejop) Residence Hall, stopping at seven campus locations to learn about their Native history and cultural significance.

The tour will take approximately two hours. Though it is a walking tour, some tour stops are accessible using the free campus 80 bus. Participants can also use the bus to return to Memorial Union after the tour concludes.

This event is cosponsored by the School of Education and the American Indian Studies Program at UW-Madison.

The tour is free and open to the public​; however, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Sign up through Eventbrite.
