A remarkable discovery: Earlier this morning, members of the @hochunknation and @wisconsinhistoricalsociety raised an ancient Ho-Chunk canoe from the depths of Lake Mendota — part of the ancestral home of the Ho-Chunk people. The dugout canoe, estimated to have sunk to the bottom of the lake some 3,000 years ago, is more than twice as old as another Ho-Chunk canoe recovered from Lake Mendota last year. Those present included Marlon WhiteEagle, president of the Ho-Chunk Nation, and Omar Poler, the American Indian Curriculum Service Coordinator at #UWMadison’s Teacher Education Center. 📸: Bryce Richter
