Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin

The Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin

Welcome to the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin. The Menominee Tribe's history is unique because our origin or creation begins at the mouth of the Menominee River, a mere 60 miles east of our present Menominee Indian Reservation. This is where our five clans: ancestral Bear, Eagle, Wolf, Moose, and Crane were created. Not many tribes in this region can attest to the fact that their origin place exists close or near to their present reservation. This is where our history begins. Explore and feel the history of the Menominee tribe from past to present.
