A Program Of Our 2019 Learning Series – Kečąk: We Once Lived Here | The Ho-Chunk At Ke-Chunk Village 

This program will also be offered on Sunday, August 11 and Saturday, September  7 at 1:00 p.m.

At the confluence of Turtle Creek and the Rock River there once was a very large Ho-Chunk (Winnebago) settlement called Ke-Chunk (Kečąk) or Turtle Village. The Ho-Chunk lived all along Turtle Creek until 1832. “We Once Lived Here: The Ho-Chunk at Ke-Chunk Village” series features a variety of programs held throughout the year at Nature At The Confluence that highlights the culture and heritage of historic and contemporary Native American Indians.  Come learn what we know about Turtle Village and why people called this area home. We’ll start indoors with a visual presentation, and then walk the confluence property to learn more (less than quarter mile).

Presented by Therese Oldenburg, Executive Director, Nature At The Confluence.
