- American Indian leaders in Wisconsin will give their annual State of the Tribes address to the Legislature and constitutional officers on April 4th.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said in a news release Tuesday that Stockbridge-Munsee tribe President Shannon Holsey will give the speech this year.
Vos said in the release the State of the Tribes address, which began in 2005, promotes better communications between tribal nations and the state.
The Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council, which includes members from Wisconsin's 11 federally recognized tribes, selects a member tribe each year to give the address.
There will be a drum and color guard procession into the Capitol building before the address and a public reception after it.
