    These are now called the dancing bears, with some objecting to the
    military image of the former name.
    These were seen by many soldiers on the road just along side the mound
    group that connected the fort
    at Prairie du Chien across the river to Fort Atkinson. This was the
    "only fort built to protect an indian tribe.",
    says a sign at that fort.

    This of course begs the question why any self respecting first nation
    tribe needed help in doing that.
    That is a book of a story, with several being written after the Black
    Hawk War that lead up to the reason
    that the Winnebago needed protection from their traditional enemies,
    the Sac and Fox and the Sioux.
