  • The Potawami, Odawa, and the Ojibwa banded together to fight the Haudenosaunee. They formed Council of Three Fires.
  • The three nations were successful and their efforts made the Haudenosaunee weary of war.
  • After 60 years, the First Nations and New France were ready to discuss peace.
  • The hatchet is stopped. We have buried it during these days here in the deepest place in the earth so that it will not be taken up again by one side or the other.
  • In 1701, 1300 representatives from 40 First Nations communities arrived in Montreal in hundreds of canoes.
  • At the end of the peace talks, a treaty to stop the battles and attacks was signed by the French, their First Nations allies, and the Haudenosaunee.
  • The Great Peace of Montreal stated that the battles between the First Nations and Haudenosaunee would stop and the French will stop attacking Haudenosaunee villages. This brought peace.
