The Ho-Chunk Dictionary was made possible by the Ho-Chunk Nation and the contributions of numerous language consultants, advisors, linguists, and technical staff from across Wisconsin and what is today the United States. We are proud to acknowledge each contribution. Collectively, the following people have created a volume that will help preserve the beautiful Ho-Chunk language for future generations.
We are grateful to the Ho-Chunk Nation and the Tribal Council: XXXXXi. We would also like to give special thanks to Adrienne Thunder and Henning Garvin. This project would not have been possible without their dedication.
