While the Ho-Chunk Nation spent millennia in Wisconsin and created a culture rich in art and spirituality, the tribe’s more recent history has at times been heartbreaking.

The indigenous people were moved at least 11 times out of their homeland after generations of living in the lush, fertile lands along the Wisconsin River.

Part of the Ho-Chunk homeland included what had come to be known as “Day-wa-kun-chunk,” comprised of the “Land of the Spirit Voices,” what is now Devil’s Lake, and adjacent land known to most people alive today as the site of the former Badger Army Ammunition Plant.
