Causes of Conflict
Competition over the diminishing stocks of fur bearing animals- specifically beavers
Iroquois: aided by their recent acquisition of European firearms that Wyndots and Algonquian nation lacked
The Wynadots lived on Lake Huron, almost completely dependent upon trade with the French
The Iroquois began raiding this area to attempt taking over the fur trade of the area
This caused the Wynadots into starvation and the struggle to keep their confederation relevant
After some years, the Iroquois struggled to keep their strength and went into exhaustion from the wars
Beginning of 17th century- Wyndots had a confederacy of around 30,000 people (similar to the Haudenosaunee)
1642- Wyandots allied with the French and the Susquehannocks
