Celebrating Native American Heritage Month

November is National American Indian Heritage Month. This week we showcase PBS Wisconsin’s Tribal Histories series that presents the histories of all 11 federally recognized American Indian Tribes in Wisconsin, and one Tribe that is seeking to regain its federal status.
Tribal Histories features Tribal storytellers sharing the culture and oral traditions that have shaped their communities across generations. Each program was recorded in the natural settings of the regions that Native people have called home for centuries, and features Tribal Members sharing the challenges, triumphs and time-honored traditions that have shaped their vibrant communities.
In this documentary, Tribal Elder Fred Ackley shares stories of the Mole Lake Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
