Hospitality the Ho-Chunk way extended to Afghan Refugees

The Ho-Chunk Nation is calling on it’s 7,800 members to help Afghan refugees headed to Fort McCoy with clothing donations in preparation for Wisconsin’s harsh winters.

Fort McCoy sits on traditionally Ho-Chunk territory and it’s this connection along with the group’s U.S. military veterans that got them involved.

“We were forcibly removed from our traditional territory back in the days of the treaties so we know what that feels like,” said Ho-Chunk Nation’s Public Relations Officer Ryan Greendeer.”

Veterans in the group were concerned that Afghan people who assisted U.S. forces would be displaced so they wanted to make sure they felt welcome.

1. Bummer, the minimum donation at Kindle Fund seems to be $5K

Would like to help the tribe welcome these folks, but 5K is a bit steep.
