BACKGROUNDER

The Oneida Nation of the Thames is home to 2,159 residents and has a total membership of 6,108. Located in picturesque southwestern Ontario, the Oneida Nation Settlement Lands border lush and fertile agricultural lands and is nestled along the eastern shore of the Thames River 30 kms south of the City of London, Ontario.

WHO WE ARE

Today’s Oneida Nation of the Thames is a flourishing and vibrant Iroquois community deeply rooted in history, culture and tradition.The Oneida people are known within the Iroquois Confederacy as Onyota’a:ka, “People of the Standing Stone.” Much like their ancestors, the Oneida peoples of today, maintain a deeply rooted connection to the land and to their Iroquois culture and traditions.

WHERE WE ARE GOING

Established in 1840, as the “Oneida Settlement” the evolution of this great Nation transforming from an agricultural society into a modern and sophisticated Iroquois community is a demonstration of the forward-thinking of the thought leaders of the past and today’s change agents and social innovators.
