Eel River Indians

From Ohio History Central

The Eel River American Indians were a tribe living primarily in northwestern Indiana during the late 1700s and the early 1800s. Following the signing of the Treaty of Greenville in 1795, they joined the Miami tribe. They took their name from the Eel River in northern Indiana. They were part of the Algonquian-speaking peoples occupying the Midwest at this time.
