Oneida Nation and Brothertown Nation cultural exchange announced
The Brothertown Indian Nation is excited to announce that our relationship with our cousins, the Oneida Nation, is once again being reaffirmed through a cultural exchange of goods.
The Oneida Nation purchased a large private collection on behalf of the Brothertown Indian Nation’s behalf in 2010. It was our responsibility to repay the Oneida for this purchase, but because of our continual struggles as an unrecognized tribe, we have not been able to keep up with payments. Through the goodness of their hearts knowing this collection would help with our goals of restoration, as well as to strengthen our already solid relationship between tribal nations, the Oneida Nation has graciously decided to have a cultural exchange, much like we would have done pre-colonial times.
The Brothertown Indian Nation needs your help to raise funds to purchase cultural materials for this exchange. Materials include calico fabric and wampum to commemorate this historic exchange.
