Menominee Tribe’s History


menominee-100Posoh Mawanew Weyak
(Hello Everyone)

Welcome to the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin. The Menominee Tribe’s history is unique because our origin or creation begins at the mouth of the Menominee River, a mere 60 miles east of our present Menominee Indian Reservation. This is where our five clans: ancestral Bear, Eagle, Wolf, Moose, and Crane were created. Not many tribes in this region can attest to the fact their origin place exists close or near to their present reservation. This is where our history begins. Explore and feel the history of the Menominee Indian Tribe from past to present.

Get to Know Menominee County


menominee countyMenominee County is located about 45 miles northwest of Green Bay. The County is unique because it shares coterminous boundaries with the one Township of Menominee as well as the Menominee Indian Reservation. 

The County borders three other counties: Langlade, Oconto, and Shawano. There are four main communities within the County: two main villages of Keshena and Neopit, a smaller village named Zoar, and a more scattered community called South Branch. 

The County is approximately 234,355 acres or 360 square miles and contains roughly 223,500 acres of heavily forested lands, representing the largest single tract of virgin timberland in the State of Wisconsin. The elevation of Keshena is 829 feet above sea level. There are four rivers flowing through the County, the Evergreen, the Oconto, the Red, and the Wolf. The Legend Lake area of Menominee County is a spring-fed lake over six miles long, with 47 1/2 miles of shoreline. Legend Lake acts as a main recreational area, and is heavily developed with both seasonal and permanent residences.
