Wisconsin and Nebraska are home to the two federally recognized tribes of the Ho-Chunk people: the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska and the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin. Originally located in Southern Wisconsin, Northern Illinois, and Northeastern Iowa, a large portion of the Ho-Chunk were forcibly relocated west by white colonizers in the 1800s.
“We have always been here,” states the Ho-Chunk oral tradition. That assertion is backed by the presence of 4000 effigy mounds in Wisconsin, including 38 on the UW Madison campus. The effigy mounds are just a part of Wisconsin’s rich archaeology and the heritage of our indigenous peoples. In the past two years, two ancient dugout canoes have been recovered from Lake Mendota. One is estimated to be 1200 years old and the other, recovered last month, is around 3000 years old. The most recent find is a 14.5 foot vessel carved from a single piece of white oak. Both canoes are being cleaned and preserved a the Wisconsin Historical Society and will likely go on display in 2026.
