Native History and Culture Tour of Campus

October 29, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

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.

Join ISS for a walking tour of American Indian landmarks on the UW-Madison campus, led by Omar Poler. We will start at Memorial Union, and walk to several campus locations to learn about their Native history and cultural significance.

The tour will take approximately 1.5 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.


If you need an accommodation to attend this program, please contact issprograms@studentlife.wisc.edu or call 608-262-9716.
