By the mid-1700s, European countries were warring with one another to claim the New World as their own. They did not consider that it was not theirs to fight over. With every acre plowed or clear-cut, with every treaty broken, Native Americans saw their traditional way of life coming to a disastrous end. Chief Pontiac of the Ottawas refused to accept that end, and he resolved to do everything he could to save the land for the native tribes that had been stewards of the region for generations. He was one of the most inspirational leaders of his time.
