American Indian Curriculum Services
Through Act 31, a piece of legislation which emerged from the recommendation of the 1984 Ad Hoch Comission on Racism, schools are required to teach American Indian studies at least three times throughout a student’s K-12 career and to maintain instructional materials which appropriately reflect diverse cultures. The Act’s greatest impact on programs at the University of Wisconsin, is that each teacher seeking a license from the state must have instruction in American Indian history, culture and tribal sovereignty.
