The Oneida, meaning "People of the Standing Stone", are a Native American people who majority reside just to the west of Green Bay, Wisconsin. They are also a First Nations people residing in Ontario, Canada.

They speak Oneida. In fact, they are active at preserving their language. Moreover, they preserve audio and visual recordings. Oneida language is a vital part of their existence and is taught using different teaching methods to meet different learning styles.
