HCC sponsors Chloris Lowe to speak on the history of the Ho-Chunk Nation
4/17/2012

When: April 30, 2012 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Where: River Ridge School Commons, 4141 IL Route 84 South, Elizabeth/Hanover

Chloris Lowe is uniquely qualified to speak on his people�s history, culture and prospects for the future. Twice elected President of the Ho-Chunk Nation, he has dedicated his life to helping further Native American issues. He has worked with federal, state and local authorities to develop projects that bring jobs and opportunities to both native and non-native communities. His leadership was instrumental in the planning, development and implementation of the economic foundation of a multi-billion tribal economy. funny easter pictures

Following his last term of office as President of the Nation, Chloris accepted a position with the National Museum of the American Indian - Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. He also developed and taught a popular course at the University of Delaware entitled "Current Native American Issues." funny pictures

Chloris will begin his presentation by exploring the culture of his people, their origins, beliefs and struggles. He will then discuss their present situation and prospects for the future � a future that involves both native and non-native peoples. And because Chloris loves meeting and interacting with the public, questions and answers about all these topics will be encouraged. funny images

Chloris will also have a selection of Native American baskets, beading and other cultural artifacts on display. funny photos

Admission is free for all ages, although donations will be accepted. For more information, call HCC West in Elizabeth, IL at 815-858-2564.
