Oneida Nation and Yakama Nation in football championship wager

The Oneida Nation of Wisconsin and the Yakama Nation of Washington have some big stakes riding on this weekend's NFC championship game.

If the Green Bay Packers win the game on Sunday, the Yakamas will send wild salmon, apple products and huckleberries to Wisconsin.

But if the Seattle Seahawks win, the Oneidas will be on the hook for white corn products, apple products, wild rice and cheese, The Green Bay Press-Gazette reported.

"We thought this was a good challenge," Vice Chairwoman Melinda Danforth told the paper. "We stand behind the Green Bay Packers to win."
