  • Interested in learning about Oneida.


    My name is Wenona and I am enrolled in the Mohican tribe. However, I am told by a relative that I have some Oneida in me too. I know more about my Mohican heritage and would also like to know more about my Oneida heritage. So far, I was given a Oneida style women's traditional clothes in red and black velvet and ribbon to first learn how to dance until I did make my own dance outfit the following year. I have been to the Oneida pow wow in Wisconsin. I took an Oneida language class. I also was the lead singer to the Oneida Intertribal Singers of Milwaukee. I would like to learn more about Oneida women and pow wows.

    If anybody could give me some background on the "Two step" dance I would really appreciate that too. I really love that dance.

    Thanks in advance
    Wenona Gardner

    Why you chose to straight dance.
    by storm
    I never had much choice. It is what my folks did. That was OK with me. I will say more after hearing some responses.

    You young guys out there have so many more choices nowadays. Why straight dance?

I have great pride in my uniform and what it means to the nation as well as to my life. My question is about using parts of my Army uniform in an outfit. I know...
