About Eric Logan

Eric Logan is an enrolled tribal member of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin. The Ho-Chunk people consist of 12 clans. Eric is a member of the Bear Clan. When Eric was young and attended a Native American Church ceremony his grandfather Benjamin Bearskin Sr., bestowed upon him his Ho-Chunk name, “Hoonch Chini Ki-ga” which translates to “The Bear That Stands Alone”. 

Being born and raised on Milwaukee’s southside Eric was taught by his parents about being Ho-Chunk, the history of his family, their traditions, stories, and their songs and dances. All his life Eric has traveled to powwows throughout the United States as a fancy feather war dancer and has become a competitive champion, even dancing on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. 

Having attended San Diego State University Eric is a certified casino games trainer with Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells and a motivational speaker that focuses on cultural awareness and diversity among our youth. Eric is one of the founding members of the family-based marketing group Tribalized Entertainment, which specializes in promoting the Ho-Chunk people and other Native American Inter-Tribal Cultural events through presentations of educational lecture, storytelling, song, and dance performances.
