The Ho-Chunk, also known as Hoocągra or Winnebago, are a Siouan-speaking Native American people whose historic territory includes parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois. Today, Ho-Chunk people are enrolled in two federally recognized tribes, the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.

Pictured here a studio portrait of two Ho-Chunk girls posing in front of a painted backdrop. The older girl, Viola Stacy, sitting on the right, is wearing a white dress, and has her arm around the shoulders of her younger sister, Doris (Dolly) Stacy, who is standing on the left wearing a beret.
