Ojibway Indians of Michigan


In the year of 1600, the Ojibway Indians of Michigan were located along the southern shores (Upper Pennsula of Michigan) of Lake Superior and the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. However, after the Iroquois League commenced their land expansions, which was driven on by their foolish alliance with the whites, they eventually sent several organized military expeditions to wage war on the Chippewa's who lived along Lake Superior's southern shores. Even without the European guns the Iroquois League had, the Chippewa's defeated them. After their victory over the Iroquois League, the Anishinabe Indians of Michigan spread out back to southern Michigan, then all the way to eastern South Carolina, northern Georgia, and northern Alabama.
