A plan is in the works by the Ho-Chunk Indian Nation of Wisconsin to create a reservation within the Village. The tribe has been purchasing land in the village near IL 394 and hopes to place the land into a trust. The ultimate goal of the tribe is to create a megaresort complete with casino gambling.
