Indian Council House

Two hundred years ago a small building stood about 100 metres north of here, close to the water's edge. This was where meetings took place between the representatives of the British government and those of the First Nations. These meetings were a crucial factor in creating an alliance between the two groups during the War of 1812. No images survive of this important structure, except a small rectangle on this map.

In this 20th-century recreation, Chief Tecumseh meets General Isaac Brock for the first time. This event may have taken place at the Council House.

Meetings between First Nations representatives and senior British officers were conducted with a formality suggested by this image.

Maison du conseil des Indiens

Il y deux cents ans, un petit ?difice ?tait situ? ? environ 100 m?tres au nord d'ici, pr du bord de la rivi?re. C'est l? que les r?unions entre les reprentants du gouvernement britannique et ceux des Premi?res nations avaient lieu. Ces r?unions jou?rent un r?le de premier plan dans la cr?ation d'une alliance entre les deux groupes lors de la Guerre de 1812. Aucune image n'a surv?cu de cette importante structure, sauf le petit rectangle sur cette carte.

Dans cette reproduction datant du 20 si?cle, le chef Tecumseh rencontre le g?n?ral Isaac Brock pour la premi?re fois. Il se peut que cet ?v?nement se soit pass? dans la Maison du conseil.

Les r?unions entre les reprentants des Premi?res nations et les officiers sup?rieurs britanniques se d?roulaient en toute formalit?, comme l'illustre cette image.
