A community of Iroquois, chiefly drawn from the
Oneida and Mohawk, and speaking a modification of the Mohawk tongue.
Having been converted by the Jesuit missionaries, they were induced to
settle in 1668 at La Prairie, near Montreal. In 1676 they removed to
Sault St. Louis, and the majority have remained in that vicinity ever
since. About 1755 a new settlement was formed at St. Regis, farther up
the St. Lawrence. Many accompanied the fur traders to the west as
hunters. In the narratives of the fur trade they are referred to as
Iroquois. =Index=: (Sir Frederick Haldimand era) Their sympathies secured for Congress by
