Neutral Nation[]

The Neutral Confederacy or Neutral Nation or Neutral people were an Iroquoian-speaking North American indigenous people who lived near the northern shores of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, on the west side of the Niagara River, west of the Tabacco Nation. Like the others of Iroquoian culture, the tribes would raid and feud with fellow Iroquoian tribes when they weren't gaming and engaging in friendly competitions. Iroquoian tribes were later known to historians for the fierce ways in which they waged war. Some tribes were highly inclined to competitive games. A largely agrarian society, Neutral farmsteads were admired and marveled over by European leaders writing reports home.

Since they were not at war with the Huron or Iroquois in 1600, Jesuits traveling in the area of what is now Hamilton, the lower Grand Valley and Niagara, called them the Neutrals. However, the confederacy did have feuds with the Algonkian people who were believed to live in what is now Michigan.

Around 1650, during a period now loosely referred to as the Beaver Wars, referring to the theft of furs, the Iroquois Confederacy declared war on the Neutral Nation. Some historians state that the Iroquois destroyed the Neutral society which ended as a separate entity in 1651. However, the Neutral population had already been reduced by diseases such as smallpox and measles carried by Europeans. By 1652, the Iroquois had also destroyed the Huron, Petun and Erie Nations. Some of the Neutrals were incorporated into Seneca villages in upstate New York, and others were absorbed into various other societies. The last reference to the Neutrals as an independent society was made in the fall of 1653. A historical mention in 1864 refers to the "Huron de la nation neuter" and "Hurons neutres" (neutral Hurons).


The chief of 28 villages, villas, and towns in the last years of the Neutral confederacy was named Tsouharissen ("Child of the Sun") who led several raids against the Mascouten (aka "The Fire Nation"), who lived in territory in present-day Michigan and Ohio. A 1627 report called him the chief of all his nation (Neutrals). Tsouharissen died around 1646. Within a generation (by the early 1670s) all the nearby first nations, the Erie, the Huron, Neutrals, Tobacco tribes, and even the fierce Susquehannocks would all fall between rampaging epidemic diseases or in the bloody Beaver Wars between themselves and/or to the last tribe standing with any significant military power, the Iroquois.

Blessings upon you Tsouharissen, chief of the proud Neutral Nation. From the mists of Niagara Falls to the shores of Lake Huron and the Detroit River, your people have prospered in the fertile lands that have come to be known as Southern Ontario. Having chosen to remain peaceful in the ongoing wars between the Huron and Iroquois, your wisdom was not mistaken for weakness, as you led your warriors into glorious battle against the Fire Nation. In your lifetime, your lands were considered a fortress of noble fighters and palisades, until your death and the Neutral Nation's eventual defeat during the Beaver Wars.

Child of the Sun, Tsouharrissen, your people call for you once more! They seek your strength and guidance to reclaim your rightful lands and defeat your enemies, old and new. Will you lead the Neutral Nation into a new era of prosperity and greatness? Will you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?
