It seems that many who have been in charge of the American Indian Studies program at UW-Milwaukee, have fraudulent backgrounds. This is another director who has been mentioned and when I took a look at his family tree saw only French, Swedish and Belgian. Although he claimed to be Metis, Menominee and Ojibwe on his UWM page.
"John Boatman taught American Indian Studies and Ethnic Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for 32 years before retiring in 2002. Of Me’tis, Ojibwe and Menominee American Indian, and Swedish, French and Belgian heritage."

Boatman has also published books on his "Supposed" Native elders, and his Ethnic 203 lectures drew hundreds of students. According to his obituary, "Director of American Indian & Ethnic Studies at UW-Milwaukee for 34 years, retiring in 2005."
