    Here’s an intersting quote from the Handbook of American Indians found at :

    http://www2.marianopolis.edu/quebechistory/encyclopedia/IroquoianIndians.htm

    An interesting thought after reading this – both Deb and I have ancestors who were sons of our Blackfoot grandmothers who were called “Fox.”

    Techteach,

    🙂 I am sorry it took me so long to check out this link. Thank you. It is very interesting and touches on something Kerry and I were discussing in an e-mail a few nights ago. I’ll tell him to take a look at this. This might help him a bit!:) You are just full of good info. aren’t you! Love & Light, Lynella.

    Where was the reference to the name “Fox?” I tried searching, but my find function wouldn’t work.

    Linda:

    Funny, my search function did not find it either and I see it right on the page. In the paragraph where it describes the tribes who went north, including Tutelo, Saponi, Conoy, etc., he includes Musquaki or Foxes.

    I have been hunting the Great Warrior Path tonight and found a good map :

    Hey Techteach – both of these links are great! I put both of them in my favorites list under Genealogy. My Sister (Lynella) and I were talking the other night and I mentioned to her how I wished someone could draw up something like a family tree, or an organizational chart of how the different tribes relate to each other. (I guess you’d call it a relationship chart). I know it would sure help me understand them more. Your first link (the one that talks about the “Fox”) does help with that issue somewhat.

    Thanks! 🙂

    🙂 See I told you she’s a Godsend. I saved off that Warrior’s path map. Maps are really good aids for me in learning this history. So I thank you Ka-jillions Techteach! I had no clue that the Musquake (did I spell that right?) were the same people as the Foxes. 🙂

    I’ve got some Native American info in books that I’ll photo copy and snail mail to you Kerry. I’m sure it would help ya’. I do think a chart of sorts on here somewhere would be helpful. I don’t know where we’d put it. That desision would best be left to Linda. So we’ll wait for her input. Love & Light, Lynella.
