Huron - A once powerful federation of four highly organized tribes of the Iroquois.  The Huron remained outside the league of Five nations, and became bitter enemies of the Iroquois.  In 1649 a large portion of the Huron were slain by the Iroquois.

The Huron survivors fled to the Erie Indians for protection, pursued by the Five Nations.  the few remaining Huron and Erie found refuge with the Algonquian in Wisconsin.  They became known as the Wyndot.

Some of the huron joined the Dakota Sioux.  The Huron had guns, and ridiculed the Dakota for using bows and arrows, until finally the Dakota expelled them.
