Series: Native Language Teaching Materials
Scope and Content Note: This series contains records pertaining to the specific Native languages and is arranged alphabetically by language name. The largest group of materials can be found for the Menominee and Ojibwa languages. Many of the records consists of teaching materials, including alphabet and syllable books, handouts, language supplement books, self-tests, writing practice lessons, workshop lessons, songs, and stories. The series also includes student cards, which provide the name of the student, tribe, parent's tribe, grade level, age, Native speakers in household and their relation to the student. For each language, there are lexicons or vocabularies. The vocabularies, which contain the English and Native American words, are on note cards. The Menominee and Winnebago records include Ken Miner's notebooks (photocopied) on the languages. Miner was a Menominee linguistic specialist hired by UWM as part of a sub-contract made with the GLITC. The Menominee records include a complete copy of Leonard Bloomfield's lexicon, as well as indexes to his work.

Series: Audio Recordings
Scope and Content Note: This series contains 132 separate Wisconsin Native American language recordings. Most consist of Menominee, Ojibwa, Oneida, and Winnebago words and phrases. Some recordings include complete stories or conversations of the speakers. English translations are provided on many, but not all, of the recordings. A few miscellaneous recordings not pertaining to any particular language are found also included in the collection. The original collection lacked a coherent original order, and many tapes were numbered in multiple and conflicting ways. To improve arrangement of the collection, the Archives renumbered all items according to a single numerical sequence.

The collection inventory is based on several lists created by the WNALP. The original notes about the quality of the recordings and instructional usefulness were also transcribed into this finding aid. Whenever possible, the counter number, which notes the location of information on the tapes, is provided within parentheses. The tapes were recorded at different speeds, which is usually provided either on the tape itself or in the index.
Access Restrictions: Researchers must use the digital access copies of the Menominee, Ojibwa, Oneida, Potawotami, and Winnebago recordings. Access copies are available as CD-Rs or .mp3 files. Filenames correspond to portions of the original audio numbers assigned by the Archives (e.g. the recording originally found on the tape labeled "Audio 4" appears as "4_01.mp3" and "4_02.mp3").

Physical Description: 11 audio cassettes and 16 audio reels 
Note: When the collection was in its custody, the UW-Milwaukee Native American Studies Program (NASP) assigned a unique number to each item in this subseries, and wrote that number on each item. When the collection was transferred to the UW-Milwaukee Libraries, this numerical system was abandoned and another utilized in its place. Thus, each item is inscribed with two numbers. UWM numbers 55-66 correspond to NASP numbers 1-12, UWM number 67 to NASP 12A, and UWM numbers 68-73 to NASP 13-18.
