Rep questions money for Indian languages; cut in sex-offender monitoring
Gov. Jim Doyle says Wisconsin is in danger of losing a part of its heritage.
And that's why he put a $0.25 million in his proposed state budget to revive a program which helps Indian tribes preserve their native languages.
Not even 1 percent of Wisconsin's tribal members can speak the state's five native languages.
Menominee chairwoman Lisa Waukau says her tribe only has 15 people who speak a language that's spoken nowhere else in the world.
