Ho-Chunk Nation Clan Mothers July 2019
Welcome to the Ho-Chunk Nation,
we would like to introduce to you our Clan Mothers.

The Ho-Chunk Clan Mothers have been in place since January of 2001. The group is comprised of female Ho-Chunk Elders.

The Clan Mothers represent seven of the twelve clans of the Ho-Chunk Nation. They also symbolize (and exemplify) the three main spirituality practices of the Ho-Chunk people: Traditional Ceremonies, Native American Church, and Christian Church with the utmost respect for each and each other.

In confidential meetings the Clan Mothers guide the Ho-Chunk woman and their parents/guardians (if needed) to discover their clan, relationships, Ho-Chunk teachings, spirituality, values, and customs.

This concept is not new. The Clan Mother’s revive the age-old tradition of our elders teaching our young. These teachings are not only informational, but also come from the heart of each elder.

Services provided with love from our beautiful, Ho-Chunk Elder Women.

At this time the Clan Mothers are comprised of the following women.

Bernice Blackdeer

Barbara Goodbear

Myrna Thompson

Ruth Decorah

Marie Lewis

Roberta Decorah

Janice Rice

Ernestine Helgesen

Myrtle Long
