The name “Huron” is derived from the French word “hure,” meaning ruffian. A derogatory term, it was applied to the Huron. They once lived in territory that became southern Ontario. Over time, the various Huron clans dispersed across the upper Midwest, settling in Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

The Huron (also known as Wyandot) were an agricultural people who lived in small communities of as many as 1,000 tribal members. In their often heavily fortified villages, they constructed communal longhouses up to 200 feet long. Like the Iroquois, who spoke a related language, the Huron depended on the staple crops of corn, beans, and squash, with hunting and fishing providing additional food.

Also like the Iroquois, the Huron established a confederation of separate tribal nations, in their case, four. Established around the middle of the fifteenth century, the confederation ended wars of blood feuds between rival clans by laying out common guidelines for trade and the resolution of disputes. Membership in this confederation was strictly voluntary.

Experts at constructing birch-bark canoes, the Huron established a trade network that stretched beyond their homelands. The early French traders/explorers (voyageurs) established a relationship with the Huron that lasted for years, long after France’s influence on what became U.S. territory waned.
