About the Summer Institute

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 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.

Who Should Attend?  

Anyone with a personal or professional interest in American Indian Studies and/or Native American education is welcome to attend. Past participants of previous summer institutes have included the following:

  • District Administrators and Principals
  • Classroom Teachers
  • Curriculum Specialists, Directors of Instruction, and Library Media Specialists
  • School Counselors, Social Workers, and Psychologists
  • Cooperative Educational Service Agencies (CESAs) Administrators and Staff
  • Tribal, Community, and School Liaisons (Home-School/Title VI/Johnson O’Malley Coordinators and Staff)
  • Tribal Education Directors and Staff
  • Head Start and Preschool Staff
  • College and University (especially Schools of Education) Students, Faculty, and Staff

***Any others with an interest in American Indian Studies and education of Native American students. 

Activities and Programming

Classroom sessions use a variety of teaching methods and provide opportunities for both presenters and participants to share information, resources, best practices, and model programs. Rich discussions allow everyone to share their insights and reactions.

Perhaps most importantly, participants will have the opportunity to work in small groups to develop an action plan with access to a variety of resources to teach others what they have learned. Events will include a celebration of the relationships we have made and the things we have learned at the summer institute.
