  1. I am Brothertown and I am interested in reading online books on Brothertown.

    It looks like you are not a UW-W student, staff, or faculty member, so you cannot access our online books. You can check with your local library to see what they have available to you online.

    The Wisconsin State Historical Society has several freely available online documents on the above linked list that you can access by clicking on the document title then on the “WHS Digital Collections (WHS Shared)” link, which is provided for those documents. You could also find these and more documents on the WHS site itself https://www.wisconsinhistory.org/. I found a couple books that are available for download to a Kindle from Amazon for a fee: “Becoming Brothertown: Native American Ethnogenesis and Endurance in the Modern World (Archaeology of Indigenous-Colonial Interactions in the Americas)” and “Letters Home from the Brothertown ‘Boys.'”
