This video is from a special ceremony held two years ago at the Ho-Chunk tribe's hotel and casino in Baraboo, Wisconsin. Ho-Chunk Veteran Andy Thundercloud created a special song to honor the Ho-Chunk veterans who served in World War II as code talkers.

The 7 Ho-Chunk Nation code talkers honored in the ceremony were Bill Whitebear, Howard Littlejohn, Bill Mike, Jesse Mike, Clifford Blackdeer, Emanuel Thundercloud and Benjamin Winneshiek. We thank you for your service and many blessing to your tribe and families.
