Wisconsin Indians Resist French Domination

The Fox Indians During the French Regime


Although not strictly a primary source itself, this survey of the so-called Fox Wars of the 18th century quotes often from original French and Canadian manuscripts, and brings them together in a single narrative that it is still widely cited by scholars today. The Fox and their allies, chiefly the Sauk, were the only Wisconsin Indians to systematically fight against French imperialism.
