The Oneida Indian Nation’s Shako:wi Cultural Center is operating under new seasonal hours and will be open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Nov. 1, 2024. Shako:wi is closed on Sundays and holidays.

A hand-crafted white pine log building constructed in 1993 on Oneida Indian Nation Homelands, the Shako:wi Cultural Center stands as a testament to the rich lives, talents and heroism of the Oneida people. The building is named in memory of Richard Chrisjohn (Wolf Clan), former Nation Representative, whose Oneida name means “he gives.”

Guests at Shako:wi experience thousands of years of Oneida history, from the key role they played as allies of General George Washington during the Revolutionary War to the current day, as the Oneida people have worked to revitalize their community and regain control of nearly 18,000 acres of ancestral Oneida homelands – more than they have had since 1824.

The Shako:wi Cultural Center is located at 5 Territory Road, Oneida, NY 13421. Admission is free, group tours are available and a gift shop is located on-site. For more information, call (315) 829-8801.
