The Success of Ho-Chunk, Inc and the Impact on the Winnebago Community   

Learn about the economic development efforts of the Winnebago Nation. Ho-Chunk, Inc., the economic development corporation owned by the Winnebago Nation, is a major driver of the success over the last three decades. Build your understanding of the impact that casinos in Iowa and Nebraska have had on this success. Get an overview of the various entities making up Ho-Chunk. Impressive accomplishments include contracts with the federal government, housing development for tribal members, farming initiatives and the new broadband project. Shop at the Harvest House Friday Market selling food and locally made crafts, view the sculpture garden, and potentially see bison at a newly built paddock near the village. If time permits, we will visit the Angel DeCora Museum at Little Priest Tribal College and get an overview of the Tribal college and its impact on the community.
