Your journey will begin at the edge of the woods, awaiting your invitation to come into the Oneida village. Visitors will enter the longhouse with the Creation Story. It was the start of time for the Oneidas. Learn about their way of life, clans, pottery, the Iroquois Confederacy and a life of survival. This survival expands through the 1700s when the Oneida way of life is put to the test when their territory is caught up in the Revolutionary War.
As pressures from the U.S. Government, the State of New York and other parties mount on the Oneidas, they must journey to what was once the Michigan Territory. This new way of life became Oneida’s story of perseverance.
Along the way, visitors will meet pivotal people from Oneida’s history and learn to cook and taste an Oneida staple. This staple was the Oneida white corn.
A visit to the General Store & Gift Shop is the perfect ending to this once in a life event. This is an up-close and personal way to Experience Oneida!
