CANES Inclusive Excellence ⎻ First Nations Cultural Landscape Tour
May 5 @ 3:30 pm
The First Nations Cultural Landscape Tour seeks to bring awareness to the historic and contemporary Indigeneity of Teejop, the place now known as Madison, WI, through place-based learning about the Four Lakes region. Learn about the First Nations of Wisconsin through this award-winning, place-based walking tour that provides an introduction to the 12,000 years of human history along the shores of Waaksikhomik (Lake Mendota). On this tour, participants will visit UW-Madison campus buildings, historical markers, and archaeological sites to discuss historic—and contemporary—relationships with First Nations and the transformation of Teejop (Four Lakes) into Madison.
Those interested in attending should meet in the front foyer of Memorial Union (800 Langdon St, Madison, WI 53703) located next to the information desk, at which point the guided tour will begin. Dinner (catered by Banzo) at 5pm will follow in Van Hise 951.
