THE RAID ON St. FRANCIS 1759
Mounted Woodland Indian
The use of horses was not as common among the woodland Indians, as it was on the Great Plains,
but it was an often used mode of transportation,
which became more popular in the later years of the eighteenth century.
The Shawnee tribe in the Ohio Country were known for using horses,
with many references to large parties of native warriors traveling throughout the upper Ohio valley mounted on horses.
The horse also enabled the eastern natives to become less nomadic,
as using horses as beasts of burden,
the Indians of the Eastern Woodlands could travel further afield for trading,
hunting and to gather sustenance.
This allowed native communities to remain in one place longer.
