Welcome to Ho Chunk Nation.
(Black River Falls, WI AP/UPI) A new era has begun in for the Ho Chunga people. Chieftan Christopher Foltin Announced in December of 2021, that a western PA social club guised as an adult hockey league, will honor the "People with the big voice" nation by using the HO CHUNK name and likelihood in their upcoming season.
The Ho-Chunk Nation is comprised of twelve clans, or family groups, in two distinct moieties — Those-who-are above (Thunder, Warrior, Eagle and Pigeon), and Those-who-are-on-earth (Bear, Buffalo, Deer, Wolf, Elk, Fish, Water Spirit, and Snake) — each with distinct responsibilities such as judicial matters, health and safety, and civic governance. The complex kinship of the Ho-Chunk Nation is illuminated by the over ninety terms of address for male kinship in Hocąk. With political correctness running amok throughout our current culture. We reached out to the WI based elders to get consent. Their only request was to name each member of the NAHL Ho Chunk team. They Are Listed Below.
