The man who came to be known as Pontiac (Obwaandi’eyaag – the end of a canoe anchor) was, in part, responsible for the widespread war which began in 1763. There are no known images of the famous war leader. He was an Odawa (Ottawa) born around the year 1720 perhaps along the Maumee River. Pontiac rose to prominence as a war captain allied to the French during the Seven Years War. His dissatisfaction and unrest was based on the mistreatment and unjust handling of Indian affairs under the British regime.
