Ottawa Chief Pontiac was famous for his role in Pontiac's Rebellion (1763–64),an American Indian struggle against the British occupation of the Great Lakes.
With the enlistment of other Indian tribes, Pontiac staged the siege of the British forts along the lakes and down into Pennsylvania.
Finally in July 1766 he agreed to conclude a treaty of peace.
A few years later in 1769 Pontiac was assassinated by what was believed to be a Peoria Indian .
