August 5, 201780 min
With the Seven Years War winding down.  Jeffery Amherst the British Commander-in-Chief of North America has to reduce spending drastically.   One of the things he cuts to almost zero is the budget for allied Native Nations.  Also colonists begin pouring into the west in violation to the Treaty of Easton. A Seneca man named Guyasuta will try to resist these encroachments and a prophet named Neolin will inspire a pan-indigenous revival which in turn inspires an Ottawa man named Obwandiyag to drive out the British from the Great Lakes.  The British however called him Pontiac.
