Wisconsin Native American Languages Project Records, 1973-1976

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains records created by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) participants in the Wisconsin Native American Languages Project (WNALP), an effort to create culturally relevant curriculum for Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Ojibwe, Oneida and Potawatomi children and adults. Most of the records are curriculum and include instructional materials, lexicons and vocabularies, and audio recordings. Several of the languages were referred to by names common in the 1970s such as "Ojibwa," "Chippewa," and "Winnebago." In some cases there are variant spellings. The finding aid uses the term found on the records in the individual folders. When possible these have been corrected to the term used currently by each nation.
