Pontiac was an Ottawa Indian, born about 1720 in the Detroit area. By 1755, Pontiac had become a Chief. In 1763 warfare began between the Indian tribes and the English. The Indians were unsuccessful in their attack on Fort Detroit and Fort Pitt because they never received the promised support of the French. In 1766, Chief Pontiac signed a peace treaty with the British.

Considered a great Chief by the Indian Nation, Pontiac was killed in 1769 in Cahokia by an Indian from the Illinois tribe.
