Ho-Chunk Wisconsn Dells Singer and Dancers to Perform at Aztalan

69 days old

Time: 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Activities: Culture Study, Educational Programs, History, Music
Location: Aztalan SP

The popular Wisconsin Dells Singers and Dancers will perform traditional Ho-Chunk Nation songs and dances at Aztalan Sate Park. The Ho-Chunk lived in the Aztalan area before and after formal removals by the U.S. Government in the 1830s, and there is archaeological evidence that some Ho-Chunk people lived at the remains of the ancient town of Aztalan during the early 19th century. The famous original town had been occupied by Mississippian culture people between AD 1050 and 1200. The troupe will also discuss the significance of the history, dances, songs and drum in Ho-Chunk culture.

The Wisconsin Dells Singers and Dancers have performed previously at the park, much to the enjoyment and education of visitors. The event is sponsored by the Friends of Aztalan State Park. Attendees will need a Wisconsin State Park vehicle sticker and these can be purchased at the park at the time of the event. Aztalan State Park is located on County Hwy. Q, one mile east of Lake Mills.

Aztalan SP information

Aztalan State Park is a National Historic Landmark and contains one of Wisconsin's most important archaeological sites. It showcases an ancient Middle-Mississippian village that thrived between A.D. 1000 and 1300. The people who settled Aztalan built large, flat-topped pyramidal mounds and a stockade around their village. Portions of the stockade and two mounds have been reconstructed in the park.
