31 squares left!

Again, we are raising funds for our Green Bay Ho-Chunk youth, both enrolled and descendant (Christmas gifts as we may not able to have a party this year, but would still like to buy presents for them this year and contest money for pumpkin painting, etc throughout this pandemic). Cost to play is $10 per square. Payouts will be $50 both ways and $25 payout to those who get 5/5 and 8/8. (as those numbers rarely win)

If interested in buying square(s)? Inbox me for details. PayPal available.

Thank you for your support!!

Thank you everyone who supported our youth and bought squares......good luck this evening! I shuffled the cards, Mary drew and one of our area elders (and supporter) witnessed the drawing.

We plan to have boards for each game (fyi). Next week is a bye game for the mighty Packers, but we still plan to sell squares for the October 18th game against the Buccaneers!

We're starting weekly football boards to raise funds for our Green Bay Ho- Chunk youth, both enrolled and descendant (Christmas gifts as we may not able to have a party this year, but would still like to buy presents for them this year and contest money for pumpkin painting, etc throughout this pandemic). Cost to play is $10 per square. Payouts will be $50 both ways and $25 payout to those who get 5/5 and 8/8 as those rarely win anything. Would you be interested in buying square(s)? Inbox me for details. PayPal available.

FYI: This week is a Monday night game! This weeks board is already half filled.....

Thank you for your support!!

Land Acknowledgement Syllabi and Other Usage
The UW-Green Bay Office of the Chancellor emailed a memorandum from Chancellor Miller and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Campus Climate Eric Arnenson to the University community on Thursday, October 4, 2018. In a continuing effort to create a more inclusive community, UW-Green Bay has adopted a formal land acknowledgment to honor our native peoples. The land acknowledgement was developed by UW-Green Bay First Nations faculty to be incorporated into signature University events. Faculty and staff are encouraged to incorporate the land acknowledgment into syllabi, publications and programs as appropriate.

UW-Green Bay Land Acknowledgement
The UW-Green Bay statement of land acknowledgment is as follows. Please do not paraphrase or change the wording as it was purposefully crafted.
We at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay acknowledge the First Nations people who are the original inhabitants of the region. The Ho-Chunk Nation and the Menominee Nation are the original First People of Wisconsin and both Nations have ancient historical and spiritual connections to the land that our institution now resides upon.

Today, Wisconsin is home to 12 First Nations communities including the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, Potawatomi Nation, Ojibwe Nation communities, Stockbridge-Munsee Band of the Mohican Nation, and the Brothertown Indian Nation.
