Waukon is a small town in and the county seat of Allamakee County, Iowa that is named for a Winnebago Chief. The Winnebago tribe signed their first treaty with the United States in 1816 and signed boundary and cession treaties in the 1820s and 1830s, resulting in the loss of most of the tribal land. The Tribe lost their ancestral terriory in what is now northeast Iowa and were moved first to Minnesota, then to South Dakota, and finally to their current location in Nebraska where the Winnebago Indian Reservation was established by treaties of 1865 and 1874. In 1975, the Winnebagos were awarded $4.6 million by the Indian Claims Commission for the land it had lost in the 1837 land cession treaty with the Federal government.

The 2003 estimated population of Waukon, Iowa was 4,059 and the median household income $30,325
