During the month of November, UW-Madison campus partners have been hosting a series of events to celebrate the rich history, culture, and heritage of Native people. You can read highlights about of some of these events at:
During October, November, and December, UW-Madison has also highlighted the Our Shared Future Heritage Marker:
The recently dedicated Our Shared Future Heritage Marker acknowledges the “hard but crucial truths” concerning the historical relationship between the Ho-Chunk people and the United States, and how the University of Wisconsin–Madison came to occupy what had long been Ho-Chunk land. This “difficult and complicated history” embeds opportunities for a broad range of learning opportunities about the Ho-Chunk people including their culture, the sacredness of this land to them, and interactions between them and state and federal governments.
During December, you can view this heritage marker at Memorial Library.
