A growing body of scholarly literature has examined urban Indian experiences and 20th-century reservation histories, but little attention has been devoted to the connections between urban and reservation communities. Drawing primarily from the interconnected histories of the Oneida Reservation and the city of Milwaukee, this lecture explores the development of an urban Indian community, its influence on reservation affairs, and the migration of individuals between these two places.
