A Hoocąk couple (1920/1930)

There are two politically independent Hoocąk tribes today. The larger group are the Wisconsin Hoocąks. They have about 6,000 enrolled members who live scattered in various places of south, central and northern Wisconsin. Their government and most of the departments of the tribal political organization are located in Black River Falls, WI. They call themselves and their language Hoocąk (pronounced [hoː’tʃaŋk]) which is the traditional self-denominatio. The other group are the Nebraska Winnebagos who have about 4000 enrolled members living mostly in their reservation in Nebraska.
