These language table events can evolve from simple greetings to conversations on food, from language basics to etiquette, and so much more. Beyond language learning, these language table events are some of the few places where undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff and members of the community can interact with others. It encourages support, acceptance, and normalization of using indigenous languages within the UW Madison community. Most importantly, this program will serve as a beacon to indicate that the University community is supportive of the Indigenous cultures and is taking actionable steps to preserve the language knowledge, cultural practices, and building community.
Languages offered by the UW Madison this year include: Menominee, Ho-Chunk, Oneida, Dakota, and Ojibwe.
