An Iroquoian town situated, in 1535, on Montreal Island.

The site is now covered by the city of Montreal. Cartier visited the

town in the year mentioned, and describes it as encircled by a triple

row of palisades, with galleries for the defenders. Within stood some

fifty large oblong lodges, each housing several families. In 1603, when

Champlain visited the place, nothing remained of the town, and Indians

of a different stock occupied the island. =Bib.=: Cartier, Bref recit,
