About Wyandotte Nation

The Wyandotte Nation is a federally recognized Native American tribe in Oklahoma. They are descendants of the Wendat Confederacy and Native Americans with territory near Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. Under pressure from Iroquois and other tribes, then from European settlers and the United States government, the tribe gradually moved south and west: to Ohio, Michigan, Kansas and Oklahoma in the United States. Smaller organized groups of Wendat descendants live in Kansas and Michigan in the United States. The Huron-Wendat First Nation has a reserve at Wendake, Quebec, Canada, with a population close to that of the Wyandotte Nation.
