Oneida Nation, People of the Standing Stone Old

The Oneida Nation of Wisconsin is nestled in a rural setting just west of Green Bay. Rolling hills and lush forests greet visitors to the Oneida Reservation.

You can learn about the rich Oneida heritage and history by visiting the Oneida Museum. The story of the Oneida (People of the Standing Stone) unfolds in exhibits that start with the Creation Story, morphs into the history of the Iroquois Confederacy and then ends with how the Oneida people are striving to keep their traditions and customs alive today.  An extensive “hands-on” area lets visitors touch and feel custom Oneida beadwork, tools, and traditional clothing as they walk through a replica traditional longhouse.

Reservation tours are available to discover our past, present and envision our future. Visitors will be transported to historical locations on the reservations and also see current progress and improvements that have been achieved by the Oneidas.

Points of interest on the tour can be customized to fit the visitor’s interests and can include an eye-catching view at the buffalo overlook,  then travel to the Oneida Cultural Heritage Village featuring a traditional longhouse (expected to open summer of 2018), five 100+ year old log homes originally inhabited on the reservation after the Oneidas move from their New York Homelands. The flags at the Oneida Veterans Memorial Wall wave proudly as you depart the village and venture on throughout the reservation.

Try your luck at one of the three Oneida Casinos or play an afternoon of golf at Thornberry Creek at Oneida Golf Course, the official golf course of the Green Bay Packers and home to the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic.

The award-winning Radisson Hotel and Conference Center- Green Bay is owned and operated by the Oneida Nation. Located across from the airport, it has been awarded the prestigious President’s Award numerous times. Beautiful, spacious rooms provide visitors with a place to unwind and relax. You’re sure to find something you love at one of the many restaurant and bar options here at Radisson and at the connected Oneida Casino. Visit Pine Tree Grill or Vince Lombardi’s Legendary Sports Bar & Grill for a taste of Oneida Nation-raised beef.

The Oneida Nation has partnered with the Green Bay Packers. The Oneida Nation Gate at Lambeau Field greets over 70,000 fans as they enter the historic stadium. Also around the stadium district be sure to experience the Oneida Nation Walk of Legends. This walking tour of 24 granite monuments highlights players and eras of Green Bay football history.
