John Wetzel: Rename Riverside to honor Ho-Chunk


The city of La Crosse needs to think big when looking at ways to recognize the Ho-Chunk.

I would recommend that Riverside Park be renamed Ho-Chunk.

Then, the whole park can be used to recognize the history of the Ho-Chunk and their connection to the Mississippi River and the La Crosse area, plus their concern for family, tribe and nature.

This needs more than a statue.

John Wetzel, Holmen
