Event Description

Join the Indigenous Law Students Association (ILSA) and University of Wisconsin Law School in honoring Wisconsin's Indigenous Peoples. Thirteen Native Nations with ancestral ties to Wisconsin will present their flags during a ceremony featuring tribal veterans, a drum group and remarks from university and tribal leaders. The Native Nations participating in the flag ceremony include:

Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa
Brothertown Indian Nation
Forest County Potawatomi Community
Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin
Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa
Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa
Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin
Oneida Nation of Wisconsin
Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa
St. Croix Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin
Sokaogon Chippewa Community / Mole Lake Band of
Lake Superior Chippewa
Stockbridge-Munsee Community Band of Mohican Indians
Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska

Flag ceremonies are deeply rooted in honoring the service members from their respective tribes who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The University of Wisconsin–Madison occupies ancestral Ho-Chunk land, a place their nation has called Teejop (day-JOPE) since time immemorial. This flag ceremony is one of many steps that will occur to foster and improve the relationships between Native Nations and the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
