This project is comprised of profiles for members of the Brothertown Indian Nation and their descendants.

The Brothertown came together in 1700s under the leadership of Samson Occum. The tribe descends from Christian Indians of the Mohegan, Pequot, Niantic, Narragansett, Montaukett and Tunxis tribes from seven separate Indian villages in Rhode Island, Connecticut and Long Island, New York. All of these parent tribes are Algonquian.

In 1832, after having moved 4 times in 60 years, the tribe arrived on the eastern shore of Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin. They migrated west with the Stockbridge-Munsee tribe and members of the Oneida Indian Nation.

Membership is comprised of the descendants of three previously certified rolls. The 1839 roll, the 1901 roll and a roll dated 1967.

At this time, the US Federal Government does not recognize the Brothertown Indian Nation as a autonomous tribe.
