Title

Native Americans at Pharmacy in Black River Falls, Wisconsin

Description

Members of the Ho-Chunk Nation gather in front of Werner Drugstore on Main Street in Black River Falls, c. 1915. The signpost on the right side indicates that English was not the first language of many of the area’s residents. One side of the post gives the Norwegian for drug store, “APOTHEK.” The front side reads “MA KO CRO WENA,” which means “medicine sold here” in Ho-Chunk. Thomas Thunder (HoonchHaGaKah) is standing on the left, and Hester Decorah Lowery (NoGinWinKah) is sitting next to the building. Image courtesy of the Wisconsin Historical Society, WHS-63785.
