Ho-Chunk Nation holds annual Memorial Day Pow-wow

Rooted deep in tradition and culture, this year’s Memorial Day pow-wow hosted by the Ho-Chunk Nation, held at the Andrew Black Memorial Pow-wow grounds in Black River Falls, Wisconsin, honored the 100th Anniversary of the American Legion. Andrew Blackhawk Post 129 as always, was the host Legion Post.

A rainy Memorial Day did not deter the annual raising of flags honoring Veterans that are no longer walking Mother Earth. Veterans worked together in a ceremony paying respect to not only Native Veteran flags, but non-native Veteran flags as well.
