Video: Wisconsin Media Lab Releases Fifth Installment, Language Apprentice

Wisconsin Media Lab has released the fifth video in a series of nine as a part of an online educational resource called “The Ways.”

The project, which also includes interactive maps, classroom questions and essay prompts, aims to inform students in sixth through twelfth grades about contemporary American Indian issues. (Related story: “Video: The Ways Provides a Resource to Learn about Natives in Wisconsin)

The videos help fulfill Wisconsin Act 31, which requires public school teachers to expand and challenge the understanding of Native identity and communities, producer Finn Ryan said. Specifically, teachers are expected to discuss history, culture and sovereignty.

The latest video focuses on Arlene Blackdeer, a language apprentice for the Hoocak Waaziija Haci Language Division of the Ho-Chunk Nation. She talks about her experiences learning her language and the community’s effort to revitalize the language.
