Since 1987, Education Day has been at the core of the Indian Summer Festival’s mission to bring authentic American Indian culture and history to the general public. Specifically developed to help dismantle the ravaging effects of racism and discrimination, this student-friendly day is one educators have come to rely on as a community resource to obtain requisite accurate American Indian curricula as mandated by Wisconsin Act 31. Education Day at the Henry W. Maier Festival Park on Milwaukee’s lakefront is reserved exclusively for local and Wisconsin K-8 classrooms and helps support the Department of Public Instruction’s Wisconsin Educator Standards #1, 7 and 10.
