As you are aware, due to health concerns related to COVID-19, we had to have a mostly remote Homecoming in 2020, with a few of us in person at the Community Center in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin while others joined in remotely on Zoom. In 2021, we were still experiencing the effects of COVID-19 and again hosted a hybrid Homecoming.
Here we are in 2022 and we could not be more excited to welcome all of you back HOME!
Throughout the day, we invite you to checkout our amazing Vendors and Craft Store to get clothes, lotions, decorations, beadwork, jewelry, mugs, cards for yourself or gifts! There will be amazing Raffle items to bid on! Donations received already include a ribbon skirt, books and crafts! If you have a basket/items to donate, please bring it and look for Jane.
In the afternoon, we have many activities and visiting planned: Roger Straw will introduce the wampum/quahog belt he made during the Pandemic for our Community; there will be multiple presentations on tribal projects, restoration efforts and more! Make and take crafts for all ages. The Museum will be open with new items, including a recently donated letter from 1817!
