Treaties: How We Come to Be Where We Are

September 29, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Treaty Day 2021

Treaty Day is named for the Treaty of 1832, signed on Sept. 15 of that year. It forced the Ho-Chunk Nation to cede territory that is now Madison and the UW–Madison campus — a place the Ho-Chunk call Teejop (Dejope, or Four Lakes).

Four of the Ho-Chunk Nation’s leading legal experts will offer perspectives on the fundamental significance of treaties and Indian law at the live virtual roundtable at 6 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 29. All four are alumni of UW Law School.

The panel discussion, titled “Treaties: How We Come to Be Where We Are,” will be the marquee event for Treaty Day 2021, an annual campus commemoration begun three years ago. Join the event online here.
