Native Voices

Over the past few years MVAC has been fortunate to have the opportunity to interview and record several Ho Chunk tribal members' thoughts and insights on a variety of topics.  The following links will allow you to hear some excerpts from those interviews. Transcripts are also available for the each segment.

You will need a player to listen to the MP3 files.  Click here if you want to download a free version of RealPlayer.
