Each winter, for over 25 years the American Indian & Indigenous Studies program at UW-Madison has presented the Annual Evening of Storytelling. Each year, Indigenous Storytellers from diverse Tribal communities share stories in their Indigenous language followed by an English translation of the story.

The Annual Evening of Storytelling is unique among American Indian & Indigenous Studies programs in the United States and forges important connections between Tribal and non-Tribal communities, between generations, and between cultures. It provides the audience with an authentic and invaluable glimpse of this Indigenous narrative tradition. Many of these traditions are discussed in AIIS courses and the Evening of Storytelling offers a direct and tangible experience for students and community members to better understand the significance of these traditions.
