Ho-Chunk land approved for federal trust

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

About 450 acres of Ho-Chunk land in Monroe and La Crosse counties is
set to be transferred into federal trust — and off local tax rolls —
under a law designed to help tribes restore their land base.

Located along the county line south of Interstate 90, the property is known as Wogisnapi and includes a sacred spring.

The tribe plans to use it for cultural activities such as hunting,
gathering medicinal plants and growing tobacco, said spokeswoman Anne
Thundercloud.

“We’re keeping on with what it is we do — taking care of the land,” she said.
