Oneida language is on the move : ICT [2006/01/04]
ONEIDA NATION HOMELANDS, N.Y. - Early on a wintry Monday, an Oneida classroom is filled with chirping voices and the smell of coffee.
It contacted a group of Oneidas living in the Thames River region of Canada, where Oneida is more commonly spoken, and flew two speakers to central New York to start the course.
The Oneida Indian Tribe of Wisconsin (3400 words)
The Oneida Tribe is a federally recognized Indian Nation of 14,533 members, one-third of whom live on or near the 65,000 acre semi-rural reservation.
The Oneida Nation in New York prefers that the term "Oneida Nation" only be used to refer to the Oneida living on the ancestral lands of the Oneidas in New York, and their Internet coordinator has informed me of this.
On the other hand, the Oneidas in Wisconsin also refer to themselves as members of the Oneida Nation, and given the numerical majority in Wisconsin, I feel their use of the term is fair.
