Speaker: Omar Poler American Indian Curriculum Services Coordinator

Join the Madison Academic Staff Network as we host a virtual spring luncheon webinar with Omar Poler, American Indian Curriculum Services Coordinator in the Teacher Education Center. Last June, UW-Madison publicly acknowledged for first time the nineteenth-century forced removals of Ho-Chunk people from Teejop (Four Lakes). Omar Poler will speak about the development of the “Our Shared Future” heritage marker, current efforts to include it in teaching and learning, and the opportunities it provides for respect and reconciliation.
