Kunįkága Remembers Red Banks, Kunįkága Remembers the Welcome Song

“We were always here, no one discovered us.”

Hopinka’s grandmother shares memories and history of the Hočąk (Ho-Chunk nation) to orate the story of Red Banks, a pre-contact Hočąk village near present day Green Bay, WI. Layered with scenes of changing atmospheres and landscapes– highways to coastlines, thunder to early morning sun- the past lives of Hočąk people and land are transported into the present moment. “Using moving pictures – we see the story as they used to tell it.”
