The American Indian Studies Minor affords students with an
interest in Indian issues and culture the opportunity to study
the historical geography, anthropology, and contemporary problems
of a wide range of tribal groups. Of special concern within
the minor are the changing perceptions of Indians in our society
and the current socio-economic challenges these groups face.
Perhaps the most appealing aspects of the minor are the field
components: field study opportunities to Mississippi Mound
sites, Plains battlesites, and Southwest historic sites and
internship placements on any of several Indian reservations
in Wisconsin. For more information, contact Prof.
Ronald Janke or see the Field
