Annette Hamilton, chief operating officer and vice president for Ho-Chunk, Inc. (HCI) in Winnebago, Neb., will present “Ho-Chunk: A Model for Diversification in Business” on Wednesday, March 29, at 11:45 a.m. in the UPS Auditorium of the Lincoln Center on the Morningside College campus. The free presentation is sponsored by Morningside’s Academic and Cultural Arts Series (ACAS), Career Services, and Crossed by Colors, a campus organization devoted to increasing awareness of multicultural issues. The public is invited.
Hamilton will present a brief history of HCI and discuss how the Winnebago Tribe has benefited from HCI’s diversified business plan. HCI is the economic development arm of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
Hamilton is responsible for helping lead the daily operations of HCI’s twelve companies. The organization’s goal has been to create a series of diversified business enterprises both on and off the reservation and provide jobs for tribal members while reaching total economic self-sufficiency.
