The Wisconsin School Social Workers Association (WSSWA) is an organization based in Wisconsin. Throughout Wisconsin’s history, indigenous and First Nations individuals have been murdered, forcibly removed from their homelands, and involuntarily and violently assimilated to the culture of the white colonizer.
WSSWA recognizes and respects the inherent sovereignty, strength, beauty, and resilience of the twelve First Nations that reside in the boundaries of the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin’s dark history of colonization, oppression, and genocide towards native peoples must continue to inform our work as social workers and our commitment to the dignity and worth of all persons, the self-determination of all persons, and our fight for social justice for all.Wisconsin First Nation Tribes: Brothertown Nation • Forest County Potawatomi • Ho-Chunk Nation • Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin • Stockbridge-Munsee Community Band of Mohican Indians • Oneida Nation • Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa • Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa • Lac Du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa • Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa • Sokaogon Chippewa Community • St. Croix Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin https://wisconsinfirstnations.org/native-land-map/
