The Title VII program will cover registration fees and mileage for up to 10 teachers/staff to attend the Ho-Chunk Indigenous Arts in Sciences (IAS) program from July 25-29 at the Ho-Chunk Casino in Baraboo, WI.

Participants are able to receive three credits from UW-Madison Department of Curriculum and Instruction for only a $165 fee! Tuition is waived but if you are not interested in credit then the workshop is free!

Indigenous Arts and Sciences seeks to:

  • Bring people together interested in linking environmental and health concerns to academic achievement in science, math, social studies, language and the arts.
  • Integrate Indigenous perspectives and experience with Earth Partnership’s ecological restoration education programs in diverse watersheds and ecosystems.
  • Partner with communities to broaden participation and generate enthusiasm among Native youth for careers science and technology.
  • Address the needs of K-20 educators for culturally accurate and authentic resources across the curriculum.
