Stockbridge Munsee Community

3455 Views

The Stockbridge-Munsee Community is a federally recognized Indian tribe. They are descended from Algonkian-speaking Indians, primarily Mohicans (also spelled Mahican or Mahikan, but not to be confused with the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut) and Munsee Delawares, who migrated from New York, Pennsylvania, and New England to Wisconsin in the 1820s and 1830s. The Stockbridge originally lived in western Massachusetts and moved to north central New York between 1783 and 1786 to form a new Christian community near the Oneida. Hendrick Aupaumut, a Stockbridge sachem (leader), later chose to relocate the Stockbridge-Munsee to Indiana where they settled near the Miami tribe.
