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.
