Wisconsin Native American Nations
Up to 10,000 of this nation live in Wisconsin, many between Middleton and their headquarters to the north in Kenesha..
The Menominee Nation is an Eastern Woodlands group that were mound builders in the past. They traded furs with the French around nearby Lake Mendota around 1830. By 1856, a railroad line had come through Madison to the Mississippi River and Prairie du Chien, more specifically, through East Middleton to Pheasant Branch over land that became Middleton. This increased the numbers of Euroamericans - mostly German and English - that came in to settle. The local Railroad Station is a popular tourist attraction today, although is was quite active in commercial transport of wheat and lumber.
The lumber also created wealth for the Menominee that owned and worked forested lands. In 1954, the US Federal Government declared the Menominee Nation self sufficient and eliminated their reservation. However, as lumber declined as an industry, the native nation suffered and were reinstated as a federally recognized tribe in 1973 by President Richard Nixon. By 1979, the Menominee had their own reservation, constitution, and democratic government.
