The Genoa National Fish Hatchery (NFH) partners with 10 different tribes across the Midwest to restore fisheries and other aquatic resources. Recently, the hatchery has begun to collaborate with historians from the Sac and Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa, the Hauberg Indian Museum in Rock Island, Ill., and several other entities to gather accurate information for a display highlighting the Black Hawk War of 1832 and the history of the Sac and Fox Tribes in the hatchery’s new interpretive center. The last battle of the Black Hawk War, which involved the Sac and Fox Nations, took place just south of the hatchery near the Bad Axe River.
