The distribution of Oneota sites in Wisconsin has long been recognized as clustered within distinct areas referred to as Localities. At least seven localities are now generally accepted by Oneota researchers in Wisconsin; several others appear to exist in northern Illinois. However, recent research at the Lake Koshkonong locality shows that it stands as a distinctive outlier among all of the other localities. It is unique in terms of landscape patterns, subsistence strategies, distance from other localities, and inter-regional and/or interlocality economic and political relationships. A demonstration of this distinctiveness, and an explanation for it, are offered.
