Decades of ethnic cleansing followed when both the federal and state government repeatedly, but unsuccessfully, sought to forcibly remove the Ho-Chunk from Wisconsin.This history of colonization informs our shared future of collaboration and innovation.Today, UW–Madison respects the inherent sovereignty of the Ho-Chunk Nation, along with the eleven other First Nations of Wisconsin.In compliance with ss. 19.81 Wis. Stats. and with the 1974 Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), portions of this meeting may be closed to the public, to prevent release of student record information without prior written authorization from the student or students involved.Open to the public
