About the Omaha Tribe

The Omaha Tribe lives in the State of Nebraska, approximately 80 miles north of Omaha on a reservation between Sioux City and the Missouri River. The tribe has resided in this approximate area for over 200 years, having migrated west from the Ohio valley. As their home implies, the name Omahan or Omaha signifies 'those going against the current or wind'. A peaceful tribe, the Omahans lived by agriculture and hunting. They also originated the Om aha dance, which is common to most tribes of the plains.

The Tribe today consists of over 5000 members, with nearly 2500 residing on the reservation. Their headquarters is located in Macy, Omaha Indian Reservation.
