Imagine surviving the 1700s when the Oneida way of life is put to the test, and how the tribe's territory gets caught up in the Revolutionary War.
As pressures from the U.S. Government, the State of New York and other parties mount, the Oneidas must journey to the Michigan Territory. Hear an incredible story of perseverance.
Along the way, visitors will meet pivotal people from Oneida's history to learn to cook and taste an Oneida staple. This staple was the Oneida white corn.
