Ukwehuwe Connection is comprised of Oneida Nation Dancers and Singers that are well versed in the Pow Wow and Long House style. The Oneida Nation originated from Up-State New York and now has territories in Wisconsin, USA and Ontario, CAN. Our people had to migrate to these territories in order to save and protect our culture and way of life. Today, we still practice those ways and are here to share that with you in our performance.
