Native American History Presentation

Fragments of the Past FB.png

Join the Portage County Historical Society for a presentation that will introduce you to the story of Julia Grignon Mayrond, a woman of mixed Ho-Chunk and French descent who was a tireless advocate for Ho-Chunk people during an era when settler violence was commonplace. She lived in Stevens Point from 1875-1895, yet her story has remained untold until now.


Her story has been pieced together by UWSP history student and PCHS intern Jarita Bavido, who will give this talk. The presentation will take place in the Pinery Room of the Stevens Point branch of the Portage County Public Library on Tuesday, February 20th at 6:30 p.m. and is free to attend. This presentation has been generously sponsored by Meg Erler.
