Crossing the Digital Divide: College of Menominee Nation Uses Technology to Restore Language
Benton, Sherrole
Tribal College Journal of American Indian Higher Education, v23 n3 Spr 2012
In the wild river region of northeastern Wisconsin, the Menominee people conserved a portion of their ancient homelands now known as the Menominee Indian Reservation. The Menominee are nationally known for their majestic forests. The Wolf River flows southward for more than 200 miles from its headwaters in Pine Lake to Lake Poygan near the city of Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Like the merging of tributaries into the Wolf River, there is also a confluence of old and new on the reservation as the Menominee merge language and culture with computers, technology, and new opportunities. At the College of Menominee Nation (CMN), the Menominee people are developing new ways to teach their culture and language. This article discusses how instructors, students, and elders at the college are using technology to restore language.
