This screening features two 30-minute segments on the Potawatomi and Oneida tribes.

Potawatomi History: Along the banks of the Wolf River, tribal elder and preservationist David Grignon tells the oral tradition of the Menominee people. Grignon shares not only who the Menominee are, but why they’re in Wisconsin, and how he is striving to preserve their traditions.

Oneida History: From the flowing waters of Duck Creek, elder Randy Cornelius shares the oral tradition of the Oneida people, including their creation story, and explains how he has learned to navigate two worlds: the modern and the traditional.
