Of Algonquian stock. First mentioned in the Jesuit
Relation of 1660 as living south-west of Green Bay. They ranged
throughout the country between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi, and
down the west bank of that river as far as the Des Moines; and have been
described by Allouez, Marquette, Hennepin, Rasles, and other early
French explorers. Harassed on one side by the Sioux and Foxes, and on
the other by the Iroquois, their numbers were reduced from six or eight
thousand, at the end of the seventeenth century, to less than two
thousand about 1750. The murder of Pontiac by one of their warriors
brought upon them a war of extermination. To-day only a handful remain,
in Oklahoma. =Index=: (Count Frontenac era) Allies of the French against the Iroquois,
