Act 31: State law that requires all public school districts and pre-service teacher programs to provide instruction in the history, culture, and tribal sovereignty of the eleven federally-recognized American Indian nations in the State of Wisconsin.

The goals of the workshop are to share best practices, information, model programs, and resources with educators so that they are knowledgeable about Wisconsin American Indian Studies and are able to support participants in meeting the requirements of Act 31.

This day-long workshop will have in-depth training and discussions regarding Wisconsin American Indian Studies or Act 31 (1989/1991). The focus will be to help educators understand the implementation of Act 31.  The workshop is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and information they need to integrate the requirements of Act 31 into lesson plans, material selections, pedagogical practices, and district curriculum. Information about Wisconsin American Indian nation’s histories, treaty rights, sovereignty, and cultures will be presented throughout the workshop.
