Some tribes sided with the British,some sided with the Revolutionnaries


Many tribes decided to side with the British Loyalists since the 1763 Royal Proclamation had made illegal the emigration West of the Appalachians. They thought it was in their interests to side with the British army. Those who had backed the Revolution were betrayed and saw their lands being stolen just like the others.
