Earlier this #UWNativeNovember, students and staff joined together with Bill Quackenbush, the @hochunknation’s Tribal Historic Preservation officer, to build a traditional Ho-Chunk dwelling near Dejope Residence Hall. The dwelling, called a ciiporoke (chee-POE-doe-kay), has long been a place of home, family, community, teaching and learning in the Ho-Chunk culture and remains an essential part of Ho-Chunk life. UW–Madison occupies ancestral Ho-Chunk land, a place the Ho-Chunk Nation call Teejop (day-JOPE). In an 1832 treaty, the Ho-Chunk were forced to cede the territory. The ciiporoke is the standard Ho-Chunk housing structure used in the Teejop area.

Students were taught how to braid corn in the traditional Oneida way during an event presented by @wunksheek, a #UWMadison Native American student organization, and held at the Indigenous Student Center as part of #UWNativeNovember programming. The corn was Bear Island Flint Corn, originally from Leech Lake in northern Minnesota. Once the corn is picked, the husks are pulled back to reveal the kernels. The husks are then braided to form a rope of corn where the cobs are hung to dry. The corn can be boiled, or milled into flour, in various dishes.

Last week, about two dozen campus volunteers assisted Bill Quackenbush, tribal historic preservation officer for the @hochunknation, in constructing a Ho-Chunk housing structure on the North Lawn of Dejope Residence Hall. The dwelling, called a ciiporoke (a Ho-Chunk language word pronounced ‘chee-POE-doe-kay’), has long been a place of home, family, community, teaching and learning in the Ho-Chunk culture and remains an essential part of Ho-Chunk life. The ciiporoke will stay up throughout the month of November. Quackenbush said he hopes students and staff will engage with it in whatever ways feel right to them — “sit in it, study in it, reflect in it. The building of the ciiporoke is just one of many ways #UWMadison is celebrating #UWNativeNovember on campus.” UW–Madison occupies ancestral Ho-Chunk land, a place the Ho-Chunk Nation call Teejop. In an 1832 treaty, the Ho-Chunk were forced to cede the territory. The ciiporoke is the standard Ho-Chunk housing structure used in the Teejop area. 📸: @taylordaynephotography
