Family History Writing Workshop with Sherman Funmaker

Saturday, Oct 22, 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Celebrate National Family History Month with Ho-Chunk elder Sherman Funmaker. Sherman will share stories of his upbringing as a Bear Clan Member, a descendant of Mountain Wolf Woman, and a writer. He'll read some of his original writings and guide participants in writing about their own family history.

This workshop is intended for adults, but anyone is welcome to check out a children's copy of Mountain Wolf Woman's biography as well!
