You do not have to worry about missing last month's discussion on Door County's Indigenous population from January 15th. The sanctuary hosted Kathleen Ratteree, a 4th year Ed.D Doctoral student in the First Nations in Education from the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Before joining the doctoral program in her 12 person cohort, Ratteree spent quite a bit of time working with indigenous groups in multiple locations.
Ratteree talked to the large audience about the history of Indigenous people in Door County and how people who live in the community now have benefited from them settling here. Ratteree describes the main topics that her presentation touched on with the peninsula's Indigenous people.
She also indicated that knowing about the people who lived here before us who continue to live here is vital information for all of those who call Wisconsin their home and those who visit. Ratteree urges people who live in the Door County area to learn about the Indigenous people that call this area home. The entire hour and a half video presentation is available on the Ridges Sanctuary website.
