Transcript of Native Americans in The French & Indian War

French Allies
During the first four years of the war, the Hurons and Shawnees became France's most important allies. The Shawnees were originally "dependents" of the Iroqouis.
France and the Huron Indians became allies in the 1600s.
The relationship between the French and the Huron dated back when French fur-traders and explorer Samuel de Champlain established a relationship between the Quebec settlers and the Hurons.
The Hurons wanted to overcome their rival, which was the Iroqouis tribe, so the british helped them.
The Iroquois
The Iroquois also known as the Haudenosaunee or the Six Nations.
They are a historically powerful and important northeast Native American confederacy.
They are known as the "Iroquois League" and later as the "Iroquois Confederacy."
It comprises the Six Nations:
Many prominent individuals are members of Iroquois nations or have Iroquois ancestry.
The Iroquois peoples have absorbed many others into their cultures.
They are vibrant today in languages, cultures, and independent governance.

British allies
The Indians involved in the French and Indian War were the Iroquois Indians and the Senaca indians who allied with the British.
The French And Indian War 1754-1763
The French And Indian war began as a war over the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers. The Dispute erupted into violence in the battle of Jumonville Glen in may 1754. In which, 22 year old George Washington ambushed a French Patrol. In 1755 six colonial governors met with general Edward Braddock, and planned a four way attack on the french. However, none of the attempts were successful and the battle ended with disaster, with the death of General Braddock on July 9 1755. However, the final outcome was one of the most significant developments in a century of Anglo-French conflicts. The British defeated the French in 1763. After the war, New France became part of the British colonies.
