As a founding member of the Woodlands Cultural Centre in Brantford, Oneida Nation of the Thames’ share of federal cultural education dollars went into the Woodlands Centre. By July 1992 Oneida Nation of the Thames had withdrawn from the Woodland Cultural Centre and arranged for the Oneida cultural education funds to flow through the First Nations Confederacy of Cultural Education Centres. The Oneida Language & Cultural Centre, operated with its first budget as a department of Council in the 1997-98 fiscal year and continues as a member of the First Nations Confederacy of Cultural Education Centres. The core funding, Oneida’s portion now at 109,655, comes from the Cultural Education Centres Program funded by Indian and Northern Affairs Canada. Grants are sought out annually to complement the meager budget.
