University Roundtable - Our Shared Future: Teaching the 12,000-Year Human Story of Campus  (back)
Omar Poler and Aaron Bird Bear
On June 18, 2019, UW-Madison publicly acknowledged the 1832 treaty between the Ho-Chunk Nation and the United States, and UW-Madison also publicly acknowledged the failed nineteenth-century ethnic cleansing attempts against the Ho-Chunk people from 1832-1874, violence central to the founding of our campus and local community. School of Education staff Aaron Bird Bear and Omar Poler will speak about the University’s new “Our Shared Future” heritage marker and also discuss how the Our Shared Future heritage marker is advancing efforts to teach the 12,000-year human story of this place. Bird Bear (Mandan and Hidatsa) is an enrolled member of the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation. Poler is an enrolled member of the Sokaogon Chippewa Community.
