Pontiac's Rebellion occurred in 1763. During this revolt, the British took over their forts and wouldn't give them any supplies. Native American groups responded by attacking settlers and destroying British forts west of the Appalachians.
Pontiac's Rebellion was when numerous amounts of tribes tried to drive off the british and the colonists. This didn't work out well because of the guns the british had. This only happened because the colonists were building into the space of the indians.
Pontiac, or Obwandiyag (c. 1720 – April 20, 1769), was an Odawa war chief who became noted for his role in Pontiac's War (1763–1766), an American Indian struggle against British military occupation of the Great Lakes region and named for him.
From The Narrows: Detroit (25 May 2013). 250 years ago today, the British outpost Fort St. Joesph (near present-day Niles, MI) fell to Potawatomi warriors. They used the same tactic that had succeed at Fort Sandusky, but had failed at Detroit. Over the next eight days, Fort Miami (Fort Wanye, IN), Fort Ouiatenon (Lafayette, IN), and Fort Michilimackinac (Mackinaw City, MI) were captured by Native warriors. This left Detroit as the only British held fort west of Pennsylvania.
