Ho-Chunk Ancestral Land
Fall Semesters Intro to First Nations Studies: The Tribal World  This introductory course to First Nations Studies presents the American Indian tribal cultural context through both information and class structure. A core value is personal sovereignty supported by respect, reciprocity, and relationship.

More specifically, in this class we will explore the historical and cultural background and continued resilience of the Ho-chunk people of Wisconsin. Within that story, students research their own cultural identity and where they fit within the grand narrative of American history and the shared history of our region.
