This anthology shares the oral traditions, legends, speeches, myths, histories, literature, and historically significant documents of the American Indian Nations of Wisconsin. The author sought input from tribal elders and educators to provide an accurate chronological portrait of each nation.

Some of these works feature a cultural hero or refer to very ancient times—more than six thousand years ago—and others are contemporary. These stories provide Native knowledge and dialogue about issues Wisconsin Native communities face including forced removals, decolonization, sovereignty, cultural genocide, and assimilation.
