Ancient Gardens of the Menominee

 

The College of Menominee Nation will be unveiling a new display in the Cultural Learning Center at public events on Monday, Oct. 6.

 

Dr. David Overstreet

Dr. David Overstreet, archaeology staff and students of the College of Menominee Nation developed the historical timeline display and provided artifacts depicting the long presence of the Menominee People in the region that became known as Wisconsin. In his talk, Dr. Overstreet will discuss research he has carried out on life patterns and agricultural traditions of the Menominee.

 

The exhibit includes photography of historic interest, territorial maps and artifacts, including pottery on loan from the collection of the Neville Public Museum.

 

A grant from the College’s Scott Zager Venture Fund supported development of the exhibit. The Scott Zager Venture Fund and Menominee Tribal Enterprises made possible exhibit cabinetry which was designed and built by CMN’s Sustainable Residential Building Systems program under direction of Trades instructor Craig Fox.
