Join us for a discussion with Bill Quackenbush, Ho-Chunk Deer Clan Member and Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the Ho-Chunk Nation. Quackenbush will talk about Ho-Chunk history and culture in Dejope, “Four Lakes,” also known today as Madison, Wisconsin.

In honor of the university’s commitment to the Ho-Chunk Nation, as represented by the Our Shared Future Heritage Marker, schools, colleges and units across campus are hosting the Heritage Marker and engaging faculty, staff, students and the community in a variety of educational activities to spark learning and deepen understanding about the Ho-Chunk Nation and other regional indigenous history and culture.

Science Hall will be hosting the Heritage Marker March 9-13. Lecture attendees will have the opportunity do a rubbing of the heritage marker to take home.
