The Nation is originally from upstate New York. After the Revolutionary War, they lost nearly 5 million acres of their original homelands to the birth of the United States and the state of New York. Their people began to relocate to Wisconsin. In 1838, the Treaty with the Oneida established the 65,400-acre Oneida Indian Reservation along Duck Creek. For nearly 200 years, they have lived here, a place they now call home.
