After years of negotiations with the Ho-Chunk and the United States government about how to accommodate the incoming populations of Oneida, Stockbridge-Munsee, and Brothertown peoples following their removal from New York, the Menominee signed the 1836 Treaty of the Cedars and ceded this territory to the United States.
