First Nations Studies class visit Ho-Chunk Nation

Visitors from the Black River Falls High school paid a visit to GIS Specialist Niklas Anderson of the Ho-Chunk Nation Realty Division on Thursday, Nov. 29, 2018. Sixteen students and History and Social Studies Instructor Paul Rykken came to see what kind of work Anderson does and how it fits in with the objectives of the Ho-Chunk people.

“I wanted to give the students an introduction to geography and all the tools geographers use, especially Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS),” Anderson said. The group was from a class is called “First Nations Studies: Introduction to the Tribal World.” — a dual-credit offering with UW-Green Bay First Nations and the College Credit in High School program.
