Winnebago/Ho-ChunkNorth Americaprimarily hunter-gatherers
Located on Green Bay, Wisconsin, at the time of contact, the Winnebago/Ho-Chunk later expanded across southwestern Wisconsin and northwestern Illinois. They are now two separately organized groups: one on tribal and individual trust lands scattered over a dozen counties in central Wisconsin and the other on a reservation in Nebraska. Since 1994 the Wisconsin group took on the ancestral name of Ho-Chunk, while the Nebraska division is known as the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. Subsistence traditionally was heavily based on horticulture, supplemented by hunting, fishing and gathering. The Winnebago language is closely related to the languages of the Iowa, Missouri, and Oto people.
