: Ah, Iroquois, got it. I apparently misremembered. When was the war that destroyed the Hurons' power? I thought it was before the F&I War. This is what I get for not having my own ISP. I can't refer to my sources when posting.
1648/49... Yes, it destroyed their power as it once was. It's referred to as the "disruption" since the Huron continued on. Part of the tribe was absorbed by the Iroquois.
Anyway, Mike...good to see your posts!
