"People of the Big Voice" tells the visual history of the Ho-Chunk families at the turn of the century and beyond as depicted through the lens of Black River Falls photographer Charles Van Schaick. Sisters, friends, families and young couples appear, fleshing out a narrative of the period, from 1879 to 1942, referred to as "the dark ages" in Indian tribal history. "People of the Big Voice" is a breathtaking portrayal of a resilient community whose story continues today. It is a significant contribution to the history
of the Native peoples.
