May 11, 2022

The Ho-Chunk Nation and Fort McCoy are working together for a better future. On Tuesday, the two groups signed a memorandum of understanding, allowing tribal members access to sacred sites and plants found on the installation.

This agreement was first signed in 1999, and has not been re-signed since.

“The land base that Fort McCoy sits on today is our ancestral land,” Marlon WhiteEagle, Ho-Chunk Nation president, said.
