Ho-Chunk Indian Culture and History

As a complement to our Ho-Chunk language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Ho-Chunk tribe and their society. Please note that Ho-Chunks and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Ho-Chunk history is interesting and important, but the Ho-Chunk Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the life and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Please contact us if you have a Ho-Chunk link to add.
