12 Tribes: A Look into Indigenous Wisconsin
Join us as Brothertown Indian Nation Peacemaker and elder Renee Gralewicz presents short stories about the 12 indigenous tribes currently in Wisconsin. Learn how and when each arrived, as well as some of their current contributions to Wisconsin and the Earth.
About our guest: Dr Renee Gralewicz is a descendant of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans and an enrolled member of the Brothertown Nation. Her journey started in Milwaukee, WI and led her across the globe primarily at the courtesy of the United States Army. Dr Gralewicz considers herself as a Humanist as her formal education degrees are within the social science realm and life experiences immersed her in a variety of cultures including working with Canadian First Nations and migrant workers in Wisconsin.
