Special Program: Stand Rock Nation
How Cultural Tourism Shapes the Dells
MBA/MA Cultural Anthropology
University of Colorado - Boulder
Thursday, March 13 at 7:00 p.m.
For decades, the Stand Rock Indian Ceremonial was an integral part of the Wisconsin Dells experience for tourists and residents alike. On Tuesday, March 13 at 7:00 p.m., Kendall Tallmadge will present the results of her research on cultural tourism, an industry that supported the Dells for over 60 years. Through interviews with locals, she studied the impact these attractions had on Native and non-Native communites. She also relates her findings to contemporary discussions regarding returning the Stand Rock Indian Ceremonial to the Dells. Join us at the Kilbourn Public Library Community Center room for a fascinating presentation.
Copies of Kendall's thesis are available for check out from the Kilbourn Public Library.
This program is sponsored jointly by the Stewards of the Dells of the Wisconsin River, Dells Country Historical Society, Friends of H.H. Bennet Studio, Friends of the Kilbourn Public Library and Little Eagle Arts Foundation. Refreshments will be served.
