Wunk Sheek history

Wunk Sheek, founded in 1968, is an organization that serves students of indigenous identity and members of the UW–Madison community interested in indigenous issues, culture, and history.

Wunk Sheek gives students of indigenous identity:

  • A way to socialize with one another
  • A way to connect with other UW–Madison student organizations
  • A way to represent indigenous communities to the wider UW–Madison community.

Our Shared Future

Our Shared Future represents UW–Madison’s commitment to respect the inherent sovereignty of the Ho-Chunk Nation and the other First Nations of Wisconsin. It is a first step that calls on each of us—faculty, staff, and students—to deeply consider our shared past and present with Indigenous peoples in this place, Teejop, and to make our own personal and institutional commitments to achieve a shared future with them.

Our Shared Future is a process, not a land acknowledgement or something to recite. It is a collective act of moving together from ignorance to awareness; an educational framework for posing questions; and an opportunity to celebrate Ho-Chunk people, as well as learn about the hard truths of our histories with them. It is a challenge to educate ourselves and each other, and create a better future together.
