The Hoocąkra (the Ho-Chunk people) have called Teejop (Four Lakes) home since time immemorial. Teejop is a special sacred place that is now home to people from all over the world and some remaining Hoocak community members. Together we are the Teejop community. We are friends. We are neighbors. To take this communal relationship to a higher level requires a dose of “indigenuity” – the creative genius of indigenous people sharing their traditional cultural knowledge to overcome adversity and craft new solutions. This practice is known to strengthen and bring value to the individual, the community and the bond that has intertwined us. This lecture is tailored to introduce fellow Teejop community members to the rich history of Teejop captured by its stewards, Hoocąkra, and to challenge community members to practice, observe and promote mindful learning, respect and exploration of this sacred place.This article was posted in Campus & Community Involvement.
