"At one time, this lake was teaming with great multitudes of fish and wildlife; wild rice grew in abundance; and giant cedar trees grew upon its shores. Lake Winnebago is the ancestral home of the Ho-Chunk Nation, whose ties to this water go back to time immemorial; likewise for the Menominee Nation, whose creation stories include wonderous creatures born of these waters. And at one time, the Ojibwe, Stockbridge and Brotherton people also called Lake Winnebago their home. Indeed, these waters are sacred! Today, like all of our fresh waterways, Lake Winnebago is in need of our attention and action" Shared with permission, from the Lake Winnebago Water website.
