    The French and the English inhabitants of North America lived peacefully together, but by the 1750s, the tension between them forced the numerous Native American tribes to split in the decision of whom to become allied with. Much to the English settlers’ discomfort, France expanded very broadly, and constructed communities, fortresses, missions, and trading posts to reasonably maintain the large claim. Eventually, the French, English, and Native Americans between them, lived closely in the continent’s interior. Both nations wanted the land, and expected a conflict between them, and it was clear that a determining factor of victory was their relationship with the natives. Whoever won the most respect from them had a reasonable advantage in the battle and aftermath of the war that would come.
    The Indians had a principle concern regarding their independence, so while the English were capable of offering much better goods, the French were tolerant of the natives’ customs and cultures. Rather than trying to impose their culture on them, the French adjusted theirs to the natives’. This appealed largely to most of the tribes within the interior, so naturally, by the mid-eighteenth century they were closer affiliated with more tribes than England. However, the most powerful native group, the Iroquois Confederacy (made up of the Mohawk, Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, and Oneida tribes), had a more hostile relationship with France, so they ended up forming an alliance with England. This divide among the Indians resulted in the catastrophic destruction of their relations. When the English won the French and Indian War, the natives who had allied with France now had a great enemy, and the Iroquois Confederacy fell apart after their relationship with the English unraveled. From here on out, the Indians would seldom regather any position in numbers to defend themselves.
