The modern Indian tribes of the western Great Lakes region have the largest remaining population of all tribes in the Woodlands area. Despite changes wrought by contact with Euro-American cultures and societies, Native people in the Great Lakes region have maintained a strong sense of communal life and family organization and have persevered in many traditional ways of life while simultaneously accommodating themselves to American society and its economy. While they are members of modern American society, Indian people of the Great Lakes have retained much of their culture, and remain a strong presence in local society today. .

Today, eleven federally recognized Indian tribes call Wisconsin their home. In addition, the Brothertown Tribe has yet to receive federal acknowledgement of its tribal rights and sovereignty. A number of these tribes maintain their own websites which are valuable resources for information on tribal structure and government, current issues, and tribal business enterprises and should provide the most up-to-date information on Wisconsin tribes.
