"Native Wisconsin" the magazine

Wisconsin tribes join to promote tourismThe 11 American Indian communities of Wisconsin don't mind visitors. They've even put together a magazine aimed at luring tourists to their parts of the state.

"Native Wisconsin," published twice a year for the past three years, is a rare publication, said Kirby Metoxin, special events coordinator for the Oneida Nation of Green Bay, Wis.

"I believe we are the only state where all the tribes are working collectively to put an issue like that together," he said.

The magazine dedicates about three pages to each of the 11 communities from six tribes. Information on natural resources, culture, events and lodging is included. A layout is given to each, and they fill the pages according to the theme.
