    Chippewa

    At a very early period, Chippewa lived about the Sault St. Marie and on the northern shore of Lake Michigan.

    Menominee

    This tribe ceded its claim to a portion of the upper peninsula of Michigan in 1836

    Miami

    The Miami, or a portion of them, at one time occupied the valley of St. Joseph River and other parts of the southern Michigan border

    Neutrals

    Bands of the Neutral Nation extended, in the seventeenth century, into what is now southeastern Michigan.

    Noquet

    Meaning probably "bear foot," another name for the Bear gens in Chippewa. The Bear gens may have been prominent in this tribe.
