Summary:
The Huron, who called themselves the "Wendat," meaning "islanders," flourished in Southern Ontario, Canada. But when French Jesuit missionaries brought deadly smallpox and measles epidemics, thousands of tribe members died. Due to ongoing attacks and depleted food supplies, the Huron abandoned their homeland in 1649 and the tribe was scattered across Quebec, the Great Lakes region, the Midwest and parts of Oklahoma, causing the loss of many traditional customs. Originally farmers, the Huron became craftsmen, making moccasins, snowshoes and canoes for sale or trade. Today, a small Huron community in Canada still survives, manufacturing these same goods and maintaining the Huron heritage. Part of the multivolume Indians of North America Video Collection, each featuring the compelling history and culture of a particular Native American tribe.

Only available in the US.
