Despite the invasion and seizure of their homeland by the United States during the early nineteenth century, the Ho-Chunk people remained—and remain today. They developed knowledge about the United States, its settlers, and its citizenship that helped them defeat the campaign to exile them from Wisconsin. In this Focus on the Humanities Lecture, Kantrowitz explores what their struggle and their victory mean for our understanding of American history.
