Nearly two hundred years ago, the United States seized the Wisconsin homeland of the Ho-Chunk people and demanded that they leave the region forever. But despite repeated military efforts, many Ho-Chunk people remained or quickly returned from exile. How did Ho-Chunk people resist and defy the government’s policies, and why was that resistance successful? Learn about the long and difficult history of U.S. policy towards the Ho-Chunk and other Native Americans. Presented in partnership with League of Women Voters of Janesville, League of Women Voters of Beloit, American Association of University Women - Janesville, and Allies of Native Nations. No registration necessary.
