PBS Wisconsin Education has updated its free collection of First Nations stories, The Ways, for educators seeking standards-aligned, Wisconsin-focused educational media for students in grades 6-12. 

The Ways is a collection of language and culture stories from Native communities around the central Great Lakes that explores traditional ways and those of today. The series also supports educators in meeting the requirements of Wisconsin Act 31. It includes contemporary video stories, updated maps and educator guides with story summaries, discussion questions and supplemental essays. 

The collection’s goal is to expand knowledge and understanding of contemporary Wisconsin’s First Nations cultures and languages in the Great Lakes region, and to describe the role of language, tradition and culture in Wisconsin First Nations identities and communities.
