Ho-Chunk Clan Circle dedicated

Members of the Ho-Chunk and UW–Madison communities gathered on May 4 to dedicate the Ho-Chunk Clan Circle, a series of sculptures representing the 12 clans of the Ho-Chunk Nation. The space outside the Bakke Recreation & Wellbeing Center was created in partnership with Ho-Chunk artist Ken Lewis and other advisors representing the Ho-Chunk Nation. UW–Madison occupies ancestral Ho-Chunk land, a place the Ho-Chunk Nation call Teejop.

Oneida Nation Promoting Food Sovereignty Among Indigenous Communities

The Oneida Nation is developing a model of programming that promotes traditional food ways, agriculture, and cultural identity among Indigenous communities as a comprehensive approach to reducing health disparities and improving health and health care. Through this initiative, using a grant from the Wisconsin Partnership Program, the Oneida Nation is demonstrating how traditional food ways connect community members to their land, history, and culture, and serve as an important part of health care.
