First Nations Education and Door County Auditorium to highlight the work of Indigenous educators
Door Community Auditorium joins forces with University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s First Nations Education programs and The Door County Civility project to present the 2022 Door County Talks Series. This year’s series will explore the history, geographical locations, and cultures, past and present, of four of our regions’ First Nations: Ho-Chunk (January 22), Oneida (February 12), Potawatomi (February 19), and Menominee (March 5).
As in past years, the talks will be held at Door Community Auditorium on Saturday mornings at 10 and include the opportunity to purchase coffee and pastries. This year—to allow for more spacing than our fireside lobby affords—the talks will be held on stage. The events are free, but donations are gladly accepted.
The format for each talk is as follows: Doors open at 9:30 a.m. for coffee and conversation. The first segment of the talk will last from approximately 10-10:45, and be followed by a 20 minute break. And, finally, the second segment and Q&A will take place and end at approximately 12 p.m.
