Created and written by members of the Ogemawahj Tribal Council, this profile of Moose Deer Point First Nation introduces students to the contemporary First Nation community situated in the Parry Sound area of Ontario.
The Potawatomi Nation was the dominant people in the region of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and southern Michigan during the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Active participants in the fur trade, and close friends with many French fur traders and government leaders, the Potawatomis remained loyal to New France throughout the colonial period, resisting the lure of the inexpensive British trade goods that enticed some of their neighbours into alliances with the British.
