The Town of Stockbridge was first founded as Indian Town in the 1730s, created for resettled Mohicans who became known as the “Stockbridge Indians.” Over the next century, the Stockbridge Indians endured several more relocations and continues today in Wisconsin as the Stockbridge-Munsee Mohican Nation. The Annual Meeting will feature remarks by a delegation of the Nation’s representatives: Council Vice President Doug Huck,  Council members Joe Miller and JoAnn Schedler, and Historic Preservation Officer Bonney Hartley. They will share their perspectives on the Stockbridge Indian Town history, including discussion on the legacy of Mohican Veterans. They also will introduce the state of the tribe today and highlight its continuing involvement in Stockbridge and other traditional homelands in the region.
