Default Anyone really know who Chief Pontiac was?

1) Obviously a Chief, but of what tribe?

2) In 1760 he met a British officer, who was the British officer?

3) Where did they meet?

4) What was the meeting about?

5) Why did he have this meeting?

6) After the meeting, some time past and he became an organizer. What did he organize?

7) After he got things "organized" what did he and others do?

8) What was the result of his and others efforts?

9) One August 17, 1765 what was his final objective?

10) In 1769, how did his story end?

Default Chief Pontiac

Chief of the Ottawa Indians (native Americans). I believe from the Pontiac,Michigan area. I have a neat little paperback book on the subject in my library. However, I am not there today!

When a cat is dropped it always lands on its feet. When buttered toast is dropped it always lands with the buttered side facing down. If a piece of buttered toast was attached to the back of a cat, when dropped, the cat/buttered toast combination should hover, spinning just above the ground, as it tries unsuccessfully to resolve the inevitable conflict of non-scientific certainties.
