About the Event

Nearly two hundred years ago, the United States seized the Wisconsin homeland of the Ho-Chunk people and demanded that they leave the region forever. But despite repeated military efforts, many Ho-Chunk people remained or quickly returned from exile. How did Ho-Chunk people resist and defy the government’s policies, and why was that resistance successful?  Join us as we learn about the long and difficult history of U.S. policy towards the Ho-Chunk and other Native Americans.

Stephen Kantrowitz, Plaenert-Bascom Professor of History at UW-Madison, is the author of the book Citizens of a Stolen Land: A Ho-Chunk History of the Nineteenth-Century United States.

This Badger Talks Program is sponsored by Hedberg Public Library, Allies of Native Nations, American Association of University Women - Janesville, League of Women Voters of Janesville, and League of Women Voters of Beloit.
