The series opener will be “Ho-Chunk History: Past, Present & Future” with William Nąąwącekǧize Quackenbush on Jan. 22. He’ll share the steeped history of the Ho-Chunk People here, as relayed through oral history that reaches back to the last glacial episode and beyond.

Wade Fernandez of the Menominee Nation will perform a ticketed closing concert the evening of March 5. The series is presented in partnership with UW-Green Bay and the Door County Civility Project. All presentations will take place at 10 am.
