The Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican lndians is originally from the northeastern part of the United States. Mohican, originally pronounced Muh-he-con-ne-ok, means “People of the waters that are never still." Like their name, they have been on many trails, seemingly never still, on a journey to their present-day home.
They leave their name prominently in the state at one of their former homes - Stockbridge, Wisconsin - located on the eastern shore of Lake Winnebago. They have been at their present location in Shawano County since 1856, having obtained the lands by treaty from their neighbor to the north, the Menominee Tribe.
The many trails symbol found on Mohican Stockbridge-Munsee signs reflects the multiple movements of the Nation.
