Ho-Chunk, Inc., which has secured a handful of federal government contracts over the past year and is owned by the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, recently hosted two officials from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.

NASA officials Verron Brade, director, and Lori Moore, business management specialist, arranged the visit to Ho-Chunk’s headquarters in Winnebago, Neb., to better understand how the corporation and its subsidiaries reinvest government contracting revenue into the Winnebago community.

Brade and Moore were given a tour of the Winnebago community which included Ho-Chunk, Inc. business operations, new housing development, the EduCare building, Little Priest Tribal College and the Ho-Chunk Village.

Last summer, All Native Inc., a subsidiary of Ho-Chunk Inc., was awarded a $23 million federal contract providing human resources and information technology services to NASA’s Washington, D.C. headquarters and at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center facilities in Greenbelt, Md., Wallops Island, Va., and New York City.
