Western Technical College Features Wisconsin First Nations Student Stories Of Strength

Flowers of Many Nations

LA CROSSE, Wis., November 4, 2021 – Western Technical College is highlighting American Indian student stories through November at Western’s Learning Commons, 716 Badger St., La Crosse.

The tribute focuses on the lived experiences of Western students from the Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Stockbridge Munsee Mohican, Oneida, Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Chippewa, and Constance Lake Cree Nations. The stories of strength, determination, survival, joy, passion, and pride were collected in an interview project led by Western’s Human Services program.

“The words of those interviewed are powerful and ask us to both honor strength through healing and dismantle injustice,” said Kirsten Moffler-Daykin, Learning Commons manager at Western. “Please visit and celebrate this tribute to our storytellers who draw strength from their family, culture, land, personal triumphs, and their future goals.”

The Learning Commons is located on the second floor of Western’s Student Success Center. Visitors can view the display during normal business hours.
