ThunderMoh he hump gah...October 2004Clan

My Ho-Chunk name is Moh he hump gah, which means "Light of the Earth, With a Bright Flash." I am an enrolled member of the Ho-Chunk Nation, Thunder Clan.

The Ho-Chunk Nation's Executive Building is located in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. The images below depict our Executive Building:

I graduated with a BS from the University of Illinois.

Current interests include: my family, volleyball, football, pow wows, Ho-Chunk Nation tribal activities, and motorcycles (there are only two types of motorcycles...Harley Davidson and Indian).

The Ho-Chunk Nation was previously named the Winnebago Tribe by French explorer Jean Nicolet. In 1994 the tribe changed its name to what we had always known ourselves as, the Hochungara, or Ho-Chunk, meaning "People of the Big Voice."
