Biography / Administrative History
The hunting grounds of the Huron nation were widely scattered in the Great Lakes region. Following the Seven Years' War and Pontiac's uprising in 1763, the Hurons of the Detroit (residing on both sides of the St Clair River) were among the nations invited to re-establish peaceful relations with the British Crown. The negotiations were carried out in a series of councils conducted by Sir William Johnson in the summer of 1764.
