The Mohican Indian tribe, also known as the Mahican, is an Algonquian-speaking tribe that originally lived in the Hudson River Valley in New York and Connecticut.
The Mohican tribe is believed to have descended from the Lenape people, who were the original inhabitants of the area. The Mohican tribe was part of the powerful Iroquois Confederacy, which was a powerful alliance of Native American tribes in the region.
The Mohican tribe was known for its powerful warriors and was a feared enemy of the English settlers in the area. The tribe was also known for its strong sense of family and community, and its members lived in villages along the Hudson River.
The Mohican tribe was decimated by smallpox and other diseases brought by the Europeans, and by the 17th century, the tribe had been reduced to a few hundred members.
In the 18th century, the tribe was pushed out of their traditional lands by the English settlers and was forced to relocate to Canada.
Today, the Mohican Indian tribe is a federally recognized tribe and is headquartered in Wisconsin. The tribe is actively involved in preserving their culture and heritage, and has established a number of educational and cultural programs for its members.
