Learn About UWM's 'Commitment To Serving The Native American Population'

Milwaukee has long prided itself on its diversity, with enclaves of ethnic groups settling in the area for generations. But long before the Germans, Poles, Slovaks, Italians and Irish arrived, there was a population of Native Americans.

Today, Milwaukee is home to the largest number of Native Americans living in any American city east of the Mississippi. And UW-Milwaukee has made a major commitment to serve the Native American population through its Electa Quinney Institute.

Joining us on this edition of UWM Today is Margaret Noodin, director of Electa Quinney Institute, and Nathon Breu, a student who’s worked at the institute.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
