Native American Tribes Nations and Confederacies: Menominee
The Menominee are one of the tribes of Wisconsin and have been there for many years. They are descended from the Old Copper Culture people and their reservation sits where the Menominee River meets the bay of Green Bay, in the present city of Marinette, Wisconsin.
The Menominee were a peaceful, friendly and welcoming nation who had the reputation for getting along with other tribes. When the Oneota people, ancestors of several tribes throughout the Midwest, migrated into Wisconsin between A.D.800 and A.D.900, the indigenous Menominee shared the forests and waters with these people, and developed and maintained a friendship with them that exists to this day.
