Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin
The Menominee Nation once occupied nine and one half million acres of land which is now central and mid-eastern Wisconsin and part of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The present Menominee Reservation was established in 1854 in a treaty with the United States Government, leaving the tribe with only 234,000 acres of land. Today, because of the Menominee Tribes' world-famous sustained yield forest management practices, 95% of the reservation produces the finest old stands of hardwood, pine and hemlock located in the Great Lakes region. Forty-six of Wisconsin’s timber varieties grow and are harvested on the reservation by the Menominee Tribe.
Approximately 24 miles of the Wolf River, a federally designated wild river, flows through the Menominee Reservation. It is one of the last pristine rivers in the state. White-water rafting one of the highllights of summer recreation. Also located along the river at Keshena Falls is the Menominee Logging Camp Museum. Logging history is brought to life aws visitors view over 20,000 artifacts housed in seven log buildings constructed like the logging camps of the late 1800's and early 1900’s.
The College of the Menominee Nation was chartered by the Menominee Tribal Legislature in January, 1993. It is a member of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium, which is an association of 31 tribal colleges in the United States.
