In important public meetings and when talking with white men he was usually dignified and solemn in appear- encegbut in the Wigwam or by the camp fire he was social and cheery. He smoked his pipe,talked,and joked with his friends much as the white man is accustomed to do. When neing tortured in public he could endure By Richard Filloff. INDIANA ESTORY There are many stories of when the Indians were here when the white men came. The Indians believed the white men were angels but when the supposed angels killec their fellow men they knew better and made war against them. In some cases though,the white men would not kill the Indians and smoked the pipe of peace with them.

So the study of the earliest Indiana History is a study of the history of the whole Northwest Territory in the da ys of the early white settlers. The Northwest Territory was composed of all the land which is now included in the states of Indiana,Ohio,Michigan,Illin- ois,Wisconsin,and a small part of the state of Minnesota. It is bou ded on the west by the Mississippi Rivcr,on the south by the Ohio River, and on the north by the Great lakes. The rivers were very important to the Indians and to the early white settlers alike, because mater transportation was then much easier than land transportation. Be- sides the rivers mentioned above,others of importance were the Webash,White,Tippecanoe Eel,Whitewater,end Kankakee in Indiana,the Illinois,Fox and Knskaskia in Illinois,the Wisconsin in Wisconsin,nnd the St.Joseph and Detroit in Michigan. Of course the Great Lakes on the north,especiflly Lake Michigan, Huron,nnd Erie played a very prominent part in the early history of the region. , Marie Vhite,8A. -ZH'r'.2-'.2-1559.2-'.G'lk-li-5'4-3? the Indian was that he would never break friendship until the white man did. The white men were always the first to disre- gard the peace pipe. The result was always war with the Indians. ' Corrine Lutz.8A. 4ii+iMN++4i44+kMMii44+h44i4+i4+?N COMMUNITY CIVICS. P When a group of people live together in a certain place it is called a community They are brought together by some common interest and have laws,rules,and regula- tions. Here are some examples of different kinds of communities: a church,school, village,town,city. T ere axe industrial communities,social communities,and reli- gious communities. All people in a com- munity are dependent on the rest of the community. All the members of the commu- nity must learn to be valuable. They must take an active part in all the activities.

INDIAN HISTORY. When the Indians learned that their land west of the Appalachians Mountains had been given to the English they were very much dissatisfied. The Indians had always been friends of the French and enemies of the English. So sow it was only natural that they would do everything in their poser to drive the English out. In this emergency an Indian leader arose and his efforts re- sulted in almost complete disaster for the E nglish in the Northwest Territory. This Indiana leader was a chief of the Ottawa tribe named Pontiac. Pontiac was a very shrewd warrior. Dur- the two years years between 1760-72 he or- ganized almost all the tribes of the north nest to drive out the English. Pbntiac's plans were perfected in 1765 and arrange- ments were made to attack all the English forts and settlements at the same time. Detroit was the most important post but the commander of this post had been warned of the danger,so Pontiac was unable to capture this stronghold. Had he been able to do so it is likely that the Englsh would have been driven out of the entire region. Other forts did not fare so well as Detroit.Hoe- ever,a number of them were suprised and their garrisons killed. Fort Miami where Fort Wayne now stands was aptured and its commander slain. Ouiatanon was surrendeded but no one was killed there. In a short time Vincennes to take possession and rebuild the fort there. Abbott found the fort in a dilapidated condition. He made nn at- tempt to repair the fort and mount some cannon. He remained u til January 1778, and then returned to Detroit for a visit. While he was gone events took place which started the change in the whole history of the Northwest Territory. The Revolutionary War began in 1576 At the beginning of the war the English who were in charge of the forts of the Northwest Territory began to arrouse the Indians against the American settlers who had been bold enough to venture west of the Applachian Mountains. These Eng- lishmen carried on a profitable trade with the Indians and were enven accused of rewarding the red men for bringing in the scalps of American men and women. The fear of being attacked by the Indians cased the Americans from the colonies along the Atlantic Coast to hesitate about going into the Northwest Territory. Richard Filloff,7A. senses ' ' ksssssssssss PROVIDING FOR RECREATION IND AMUSEMENT In order to properly balance his life every person must have a certain mount of recreation and amusement. The age of mach- ines and labor-saving devices has brought reduction in the number of hours an ind- ividual works each day and as a result Dot an Eng1iShm3D WHS left in what is QOW there has been a great increase in the I ndiana.

English soldiers crushed the reb- It is the duty of every Community to ellion duflng the Coming Year and the Ind' provide wholesome recreation for its mem- ians were compelled to give up all the tives which they had in their possession. Pontiac mas murdered by a member of his own race, in 1769. At the time of Pontiac's conspiracy the English had not hken control of Vin- cennes. There were several reasons,besides the hostilit of the Indians for the slow- ness of the English in coming in to the Northwest ih any large numbers. One reason wa s that the King of England by the Proc- lamation of 1765 forbade any Englishman to settle west of the Applachians. This was followed by the Quebec Act of 1774 which a nnexed all the Mississippi valley to the Province of Quebec Br the purpose of Gov- ernment. Between 1775 and 1777 there was no of- ficial authority within what is new the cip- State of Indiana. By the Quebec Act Vincen- nes had been placed under the authority of the Governor at Detroit but it was u til 1777 that the Englih Governor,Henry Ham- ilton sent Lietenant Governor Abbott to Qcontinued next columnl bers. The community which provides these extra pleasures and benefits for its res- idents is the one where the citizens are most likely to be healthy,happy,and law- abiding.

The beginning of their labor was probably about l654. The first place they worked was among the Huron Indians on the southern shores of the Great Lakes. These priests came to this region, not from across the great range of mount- ains which shut out the English, but by a much easier route up the StLawrence and the Great Lakes.
