View the Our Shared Future heritage marker at Union South as it "tours" campus.  

On June 18, 2019, UW–Madison dedicated a new heritage marker which recognizes and acknowledges the Ho-Chunk as the Indigenous people on who’s land the university was built.

The heritage marker, titled Our Shared Future, reads in full:

The University of Wisconsin-Madison occupies ancestral Ho-Chunk land, a place their nation has called Teejop since time immemorial.
In an 1832 treaty, the Ho-Chunk were forced to cede this territory.
Decades of ethnic cleansing followed when both the federal and state government repeatedly, but unsuccessfully, sought to forcibly remove the Ho-Chunk from Wisconsin.
This history of colonization informs our shared future of collaboration and innovation.
Today, UW-Madison respects the inherent sovereignty of the Ho-Chunk Nation, along with the eleven other First Nations of Wisconsin.

Look for the heritage marker in locations around campus throughout the year including Memorial Union & Union South.
