The Andrew Blackhawk Memorial Pow-Wow Grounds site (Wau-che-raw-was-kaw Allotment, John Big Black Hawk) is a Traditional Cultural Property (TCP) of the Ho-Chunk Nation (Ho-Chunk Wazijaci people). The powwow grounds, in Jackson County, Wisconsin, have been used as a ceremonial and social event center, as well as a dance-ring or powwow ground, since at least the late 1800’s and possibly well before. As a center of religious, social and community life for the Ho-Chunk Wazijaci people, the area has been continuously used for the same or similar purposes for more than 100 years. While the physical facilities at the site have changed over the years, the Black hawk Powwow Grounds site is a center place for the Black River Falls Ho-Chunk community and the Ho-Chunk Nation.

The site consists of the original 40-acre federal government allotment granted to Wau-che-raw-was-kaw (John Big Hawk) in 1896. The current 20-acre grounds are used for the annual tribal celebrations (Memorial Day and Labor Day pow wows.
