In 1609 a Mohawk war party is utterly routed.  The reason? Guns.  Samuel de Champlain the Father of New France accompanied his new Huron allies on a raid into the land of the Iroquois. Indian warfare was about to drastically change. In all Champlain was a part of three battles involving the Iroquois. Two with the Mohawk and the third was a show down outside the capital city of the Onondaga.

Hey Cotter's, I was watching the history channel a lot, and this particular episode was the focus of Champlain, and the lake that he named. This episode said that the natives told Champlain of a lake monster that they feared. I can't find anything on the matter, did you find something in Champlain's journal about it? Or maybe a legend of the Iroquois? Thanks.
