Oneida (181 words)
Oneida, the smallest of the 5 nations of the IROQUOIS confederacy, occupied a single village near Oneida Lake in New York state for most of the historic era.
It is possible that it was an Oneida town that CHAMPLAIN attacked unsuccessfully in 1615; their town was burned by the French in 1696.
Unlike most of their brethren in the confederacy, the Oneida espoused the rebel cause in the American Revolution, owing to the influence of the New England missionary Samuel Kirkland.
Oneida Indian Tribe History (1727 words)
According to authentic tradition, the Oneida was the second tribe to accept the proposition of Dekanawida and Hiawatha to form a defensive and offensive league of all the tribes of men for the promotion of mutual welfare and security.
On Jan. 80, 1671, the Oneida began the torture of a captive Conestoga woman, and the torture was prolonged through 2 days and 2 nights because he in whose stead she had been given was burned at Conestoga for that length of time.
In 1645-46 the Oneida were at war with the Nipissing, and one band of 17 warriors from "Ononiiote" defeated an Algonkin party under Teswehat, the one-eyed chief of this people, killing the chief's son and taking 2 women prisoners.
