Hidden Gems: Native American Art Classes In Wisconsin

If you're like me, then you usually make time for some shopping when you travel. We're not talking about visiting a mega-mall in another country, but instead about bringing home an authentic piece that truly reflects -- and perhaps celebrates -- local culture.

When it comes to Wisconsin, there's more to the experience than cheese and those Cheesehead hats. Instead, think about creative items that represent the state's 11 tribal nations. For example, at the Oneida Nation Arts Program in Green Bay, anyone can join in and learn how to make original corn husk dolls that one family has been making for generations.

And that's not all. Watch me show you how you can bring home other hidden gems from Wisconsin and its 11 tribal nations.

To see all of my adventures in tribal Wisconsin be sure to watch, Hidden Gems: Wisconsin, The Complete Adventure.
