“Wisconsin’s Lost History, Unearthed”
Dr. David Overstreet, Milwaukee Archaeologist, Wisconsin Native American History, will speak about the fascinating work he uncovered on the Menominee reservation, where he found that the Menominee had pursued organic sustainable agriculture for more than 1,000 years.
Prof. Overstreet believes the research suggests a wonderful model of climate change for contemporary society, with all its concerns about food sovereignty. He is a researcher with the Milwaukee Public Museum and has received numerous awards.
Host: Janet Nortrom
