Summary:
"The purpose of this research report is to present an account of the tribes and bands of Indians occupying southeastern Michigan and northern Ohio in historic times, with particular emphasis on the period following the establishment of the French fort at Detroit in 1701 and continuing through the period when the tribes ceded land by treaty in 1805, 1807 and 1817 ... The Indians with a major interest in this area are tribes or bands of Wyandot, Delaware and Shawnee, Ottawa, Pottawatomi and Chippewa, as well as splinter groups who left the Six Nations organization"--Page 1.
