This screening features two 30-minute segments on the St. Croix Ojibwe and Brothertown tribes.

St. Croix Ojibwe History: Recorded in the natural settings of the regions that native people have called home for centuries, the Tribal Histories series features tribal members sharing the challenges, triumphs, and time-honored traditions that have shaped their vibrant communities. In this program, Mitchell La Sarge and Wanda McFaggen tell stories of St. Croix Ojibwe history.

Brothertown History: On the shore of Lake Winnebago, Joan Schadewald tells how the Brothertown Indians unknowingly gave up their tribal recognition status and have been working for 30 years to have it restored. An amalgamation of tribes that were forced from the East Coast to Wisconsin following the Revolutionary War, the Brothertown cling determinedly to their Indian heritage.
