Mingo

The Mingo people were an Iroquois group that migrated west to the Ohio River Valley in the mid-eighteenth century 1850s and formed their own distinct identity their. This conflicted, however, with the hordes of white settlers, who vied with them for control of the region, and a series of battles ensued, with the Mingo led by Chief Logan. Despite some pockets of resistance, the Mingo were crushed, and the surviving members of the group mixed with the larger Shawnee[?] and Miami[?] peoples. The Mingo were finally defeated by the United States in 1831 and forced to move to a reservation in the west.
