Does Native American architecture make you think of tents and teepees? Turns out there is a lot more sophisticated design to be found in Wisconsin’s tribal nations. And in visiting these structures, you open the door to understanding how tribes like the Ho-Chunk, the Menominee, and the Oneida used to live.
There are traditional structures, like the Oneida Longhouse, that are still standing after centuries. The culture also comes alive from Waswagoning, a recreation of a traditional Ojibwe village at Lac du Flambeau, where you can get a hands-on lesson in how the Ojibwe live.
Peter visits the original structures of Wisconsin’s 11 tribal nations to experience the hidden gems of architecture, craftsmanship and culture.
