The Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians were pushed from the Eastern seaboard across half a continent, forced to uproot and move many times to our present Land in Wisconsin. They have adopted the Many Trails symbol as reorientation of strength, hope, endurance and the many moves they endured since leaving the State of New York in the 1700’s. Their first move was from the Mohican homelands called Muh-he-kun-ne-ok, meaning “people of the waters that are never still,” which were located along the banks of what is now called the Hudson River.
