The Oneida[]

The Oneida homeland extends across present-day Oneida and Madison Counties in the Central New York Region, stretching from the upper Mohawk valley to the Oneida River drainage basin and includes the 17,370 acres of land now owned by the Nation and proposed for trust transfer. At its greatest historic extent, Nation lands extended from the Saint Lawrence River to the upper Susquehanna valley and beyond, a domain of about six million acres. The core of the Oneida homeland is centered on the Oneida and Cowaselon Creek valleys, southeast of Oneida Lake.


Shenandoah, also known as Shenendoah and Shenandoah, was born in 1710 into the Iroquoian-speaking Susquehannock people (also called Conestoga), located in present-day eastern Pennsylvania. He was adopted into the Oneida people, one of the Five Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy. The Oneida elected him as a "Pine Tree Chief", in recognition of his leadership and contribution to the tribe. This position allowed him a place in the Grand Council of 50 chiefs of the Confederacy, representing all the clans of all the nations. It was not hereditary, nor could Shenandoah name a successor. The name referred to a man being recognized as a chief and rising up inside the tribe. During the Seven Years' War (also called the French and Indian War in the United States), Chief Shenandoah favored the British against the French and led the Oneida in their support in central New York. He was said to have saved German colonists in German Flatts, in the Mohawk Valley, from a massacre. During the next decades, he formed more alliances with the ethnic German and British colonists in central and western New York.

Dawn of Man[]

"May God be with you, Chief John Shenandoah of the Oneida Iroquois. You made a great friend for the Oneida, Samuel Kirkland, who brought the Oneida Christianity and means of an education. You were tasked with leading the Oneida during a time riddled with great uncertainty, with the American Revolution. And to your fellow Iroquois’ surprise, you chose to side with the American cause. Even with most of your fellow countrymen turned against you, you pushed for the Oneida to not be overcome by the war effort. You even helped George Washington and his army during their time of need at Valley Forge, becoming recognized as a great ally to the Americans. You represented the Oneida to not be overcome by the American settlers, being one of the few native tribes to remain in part of their original territory.

O, Shenandoah, the Oneida call for you to represent them once more. They seek your wisdom in diplomacy, warfare, and welfare to keep the Oneida still standing on the world stage. Can you make an unlikely ally once more? Can you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "I am Shenandoah, chief and spokesperson of the Oneida. We don't wish you and your people harm, but if it coems to it, we won't hesitate to fight for what we believe in."

Defeat: "I an aged hemlock, perhaps I've grown too old to make the decisions of the Oneida."
