Why did the French and the Native Americans become allies in the beginning of the French and Indian War?
What role did this relationship have in the war?
Why was this relationship so important?
The French and Indians became allies because they already had a good relationship after the Colonists pushed them out of the 13 Colonies. The French did own land in North Americans but they only had forts set up and didn't try to get rid of the Native Americans but instead traded with them and became closer allies.
This relationship heavily impacted the war as in 1754 900 French and Native Americans defeated a force of 1,500 British Troops and 450 colonial militia using a special tactic known as guerrilla warfare which includes camping in bushes and taking on enemies with the element of surprise.
This relationship ended up being very important as the British would end up winning with the help of the Native Americans. They ended up hopping on the British bandwagon like Kevin Durant joining the Golden State Warriors. This ultimately ended up great for the British and Native Americans.
