“Neutral Ground” Native Lands Tour (off site)
April 29 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$20.00
Story lives in place. In this Native Lands Tour we’ll travel to a number of sites around Fayette, Iowa where the Ho-Chunk were forced during the so-called “neutral ground” period of the 19th century. We’ll listen to largely untold stories of the land, traveling to the mission school, burial grounds, campsites, Fort Atkinson, and sites connected to the great Ho-Chunk chief, Whirling Thunder.
You will need access to a vehicle to join our tour caravan; please bring your own lunch. Once you register, we will send you more logistics of where we’ll be going. Our tour will begin at Upper Iowa University (Fayette, IA.). A representative of the Ho-Chunk nation will be present.
Saturday, April 29, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
$20/person. Registration ends Thursday, April 27.
