The consequences of this war were considerable...and not only
for the Mesquakie people themselves. After listening to the above
lectures, consider these questions:
- What do you think that members
of other Indian Nations thought about this conflict?
- How might
it have affected their diplomacy and internal politics?

later, with Americans?
- Why do you think that this conflict has received relatively
little mention in commonly assigned History textbooks?
To learn more about this understudied conflict, read The Fox
Wars: The Mesquakie Challenge to New France by R. David Edmunds
and Joseph L. Peyser.
