Then and Now

See how much (or how little!) Tosebo has changed over the years:

The Council Ring

When Noble Hill wanted to incorporate a Native American theme into Camp Tosebo, he went to the World’s Fair in Chicago in 1934.  There, in the Demonstration Village, he met Chief Whirling Thunder of the Winnebago Tribe.  Whirling Thunder actually came to Camp and suggested that a separate area should be created and used only for the ceremonial dances.

In 2004 you could walk right past the Council Ring without realizing that it was there.  However, a few remnants of the old benches remained and after several hours of weeding and raking we were ready fo find the painted stones of the Ring.  They were mostly still in place, but buried under six inches of dirt.   Today, the Council Ring is still considered the most sacred place of all at Tosebo and was carefully decorated for the Reunions of 2005 and 2009.
