Sage Walk 2021

Community family supporting sobriety

Smudging is a spiritual cleanse to clear negative energy away. The herb sage is used as medicine, to lift negative feelings and energy to create a positive environment. Tap created smudge walks in hopes of having the community come together and cleanse our community and create a positive atmosphere for our relatives.

Feel free to come join in the walks or come out to smudge as we walk through the community. If you want to learn more about walks or what tap is currently doing, contact tap@oneidanation.Org or “like” us on Facebook at Oneida Nation Tribal Action Plan. (TAP)




Community Clean-ups were started by TAP in 2021, to create a positive community awareness of their surroundings. By cleaning our environment in our community, we are showing how we care, we respect and honor our mother earth.  We also ensure, that our children are safe of from dangerous waste, that may accumulate throughout the months.

Feel free to join in the community cleans ups we walk through the community. All equipment and materials will be available for you to use.

Here is a list of upcoming dates for the Community Clean-ups: TBD for 2023


MARCH 2023:
TAP Tetwatatehsnye’ (We all take care of each other) Event 

Story behind the flyer, is we must fight together!

You may be wondering why a MUSKRAT CLAW on the TAP Tetwatatehsnye’ (We all take care of each other) Event Flyer.
TAP would like everyone to read the Creation Story and find out the significance of the Muskrat. Was he important in the story? Did he give up? No
If you don’t know he is the one that dove down and floated up with dirt between his claws, so he was the fighter.
Please click on the link above for the Creation Story by Amos Christjohn, and feel free to comment about your favorite part of the story. Remember “We are take care of each other”!
The event is on March 29, 2023, at the Radisson Hotel conference Three Clans room.
