(7/24/13) High school students from China will take part in a multi-cultural celebration in Baraboo on Sunday.

The non-profit group "Rivers as Bridges" will hold the event at the Ho-Chunk tribal House-of-Wellness. Tribal youngsters and others from Wisconsin will join the Chinese students at an event that features music, dancing, food, games, and traditional clothing that honors both Chinese and Ho-Chunk cultures. The "Rivers as Bridges" group was created earlier this year, to bring young people together from the Mississippi and Yangtze river regions. The event is part of a 16-day visit by the Chinese teens to Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa.
