On June 2, 1924, Congress enacted the Indian Citizenship Act, which granted citizenship to all Native Americans born in the U.S. The right to vote, however, was governed by state law; until 1957, some states barred Native Americans from voting. In a WPA interview from the 1930s, Henry Mitchell describes the attitude toward Native Americans in Maine, one of the last states to comply with the Indian Citizenship Act:

"One of the Indians went over to Old Town once to see some official in the city hall about voting. I don’t know just what position that official had over there, but he said to the Indian, ‘We don’t want you people over here. You have your own elections over on the island, and if you want to vote, go over there.’Just why the Indians shouldn’t vote is something I can’t understand."

Ho-Chunk Nation Community Health has partnered with the Hunger Taskforce to assist in distributing food to families in need as a result of the COVID pandemic. We are able to provide a limited amount of food boxes to some Ho-Chunk homes who would benefit from the program.

It is our hopes that the overall food share will increase as the program runs through June of 2020 thus allowing us to provide more food to your area. Please review both pages for information on pickup locations and stay healthy!

From the the Community Health Team, HCN Workers and Volunteers!

As we are in the spring and summer grilling season, please remind yourself of these grilling safety precautions!

Keep your grill at least 3-

10 feet from structure.

Make sure you’re away from your house, garage and shed, and avoid grilling under eaves or patio coverings. Also check for any overhead tree branches that could catch fire in the event of a flare up.

Stabilize your grill.

Your grill should be on a flat surface and not be at risk for moving, sliding or toppling over.

Keep pets and children away from the grill.

Separate your grilling workspace from play areas where kids and animals might be running at full speed. Teach young kids the importance of avoiding the grill and being mindful of where they’re throwing balls and other toys.

Wear proper clothing.

Roll up sleeves, tuck in your shirt and pull your hair back if necessary. Make sure apron strings are tied and secured.

Keep your grill clean.

Follow your grill’s instruction manual for proper maintenance. Use a good grill brush to clean grates before and after each use. Periodically remove buildup in grease trays while grilling.

Keep a fire extinguisher within close reach.

Having a fire extinguisher and knowing how to use it is one of our fire safety tips. However, even small fires can spread quickly so your biggest concern is getting yourself and others to safety and calling for help.

Don’t leave a lit grill unattended. Prep everything you need before you start the grilling action.

Avoid grilling while intoxicated.

You might be tempted to partake in the festivities, but save your merrymaking until after the crew has been fed.

April 30, 2020: A huge thank you to Harley Davidson of Madison and Ho Chunk Gaming of Madison!

The BMOA is absolutely blessed to have friends like the crews at Harley Davison of Madison and Ho Chunk Gaming of Madison. Because of Covid-19 related issues, we lost our ability to use the planned training facility for the Spring Motor Inservice training. These fine organizations stepped up and allowed us to use their facilities to host our training in a way that has been safe and healthy for everyone. They have truly shown that working together can build a stronger community.

Additionally, Wolf, Crystal, and the entire H-D staff has proven they are indeed “The dealer who cares.” By sweeping the training range, providing morning coffee and donuts for the riders, making quick expert adjustments and repairs on motorcycles, their efforts to help us conduct safe and effecting training needed to keep our motor officers safe showed their level of commitment and support to our first responder community.

Thank you to all the staff at Harley Davidson of Madison and Ho Chunk Gaming of Madison. Your community sees your efforts and appreciates you!

A flashback to 2007:

Marian Viviano, a social worker at the North Shore system who works part time on the mobile clinic, said Dr. Thundercloud was compassionate and attentive. “He gives them the highest standard of care,” she said. "He tends to them like they are the most important person."

We’re experiencing another pandemic and we could share this experience with our future generations.

Ho-Chunk people have gone through multiple epidemics in the past. Often times those that survived, did so by isolating. We have stories from family members and ancestors of those times which are now part of Ho-Chunk history.

The Ho-Chunk Nation Museum and Cultural Center is actively documenting the impact of COVID-19 on the Ho-Chunk Nation. The Museum is requesting your help. Be a part of our living history!

Please send photos, stories, journals, videos, or projects that you and your family are doing during this historic time. Submissions can be sent to [email protected].

Ho Chunk Nation just made me top fan
On December 6 th 2019 My mother and brother went to the Dining room at Ho-chunk nation Black river falls paying 29.00 for food it was the worsted they ever had. The customer service was as poor as you can find. Diane my mom is a elder and I do not think she should of paid for something she could not even eat. Spectra is not doing a very good job.
