We'll also highlight the artistry and craftsmanship involved in crafting Snow Snakes sticks. At the intertribal event at Kickapoo Valley Reserve, we'll witness the excitement and energy as people of different backgrounds and tribes come together to celebrate this unique winter sport. Join us on this journey as we discover the cultural and community-building significance of "Snow Snake" for the Ho-Chunk Nation and beyond.
