A large tribe, of Algonquian stock, formerly ranging
along both shores of Lakes Huron and Superior, and westward as far as
North Dakota. First mentioned in the Jesuit Relation of 1640, as
living around Sault Ste. Marie. During the eighteenth century, they
fought successfully against the Sioux, Foxes, and Iroquois. They
numbered in 1764 about 25,000; and at the present time count over
30,000, of whom about one-half are on reservations in Canada. =Index=:
