October meeting: We Learned about Ho-Chunk History

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on November 20, 2017

Thank you to all who attended the October 21 meeting to learn more about Ho-Chunk history in Wisconsin.

The group enjoyed watching the Wisconsin Public Television film “Ho-Chunk History,” part of their Tribal Histories programming, and spent time browsing selected books and articles. (You can stream that film from the WPT website.)

We were joined by special guest Kimberly Crowley, Ho-Chunk artist and master basket maker. Kimberly shared examples of her black ash baskets and spoke to the group about basket making. Learn more about Kimberly on the Wisconsin Dells Events website.


We are so glad Kimberly could join us, with her lovely baskets and informational display. Thanks to Catherine Stephens and Brad Kuse, SASY volunteers, for organizing the October 2017 meeting.

Stay tuned for news about future meetings — to be announced. The club welcomes new co-leaders to step forward to carry this history club into the future!
