Lost History of Woodland Bowl Pageants
Is Focus of Search by Student-Faculty Team

Wednesday, April 27 - Noon to 2 p.m.


Menominee pageants, a series of community events last staged more than three decades ago, are currently being researched with hope of reviving the tradition in summer 2016. The original programs were presented in the Woodland Bowl beginning in the 1950s and ended production sometime during the 1970s.


The shows may have ended, but memories of them linger in the minds of many area residents who attended or participated in them. Community meetings on April 13 and 27 at the College of Menominee Nation will provide opportunities for those who remember the pageants to help provide information for their revival. Read more

Searching for "We the People" in the Presidential Primaries
By Ryan Winn for the "Tribal College Journal"


Ryan Winn column

Presidential primaries often bring out the worst in American politics. Candidates’ messages are often rooted in the “us versus them” mentality, with presidential hopefuls trying to one up their competition by further slamming the opposing party. As an oral communications instructor at a tribal college or university (TCU), I challenge my students to analyze the rhetoric of these divisive campaigns for attention grabbing headlines, substantive policy proposals, and logical fallacies. Every election cycle my new students are reliably interested in analyzing which candidates will foster a strong economy in time for their graduation, as well as where the would-be commander-in-chiefs stand on American Indian issues.
