The Native American people lived in the area in what we now know as Neenah for many years. At our Native American Inter-Tribal Pow Wow on September 22, 2018, David O’Connor, Education Consultant of the American Indian Studies Program with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, gave a short presentation on American Indian Studies (Wisconsin Act 31). Mr. O’Connor has shared with us additional resources regarding the American Indian nations and tribal communities in the state of Wisconsin. The following are links for additional information, materials and resources:
