More Militia Questions
Were there Iroquois with the New England militia?
The New Englanders tried to recruit native allies in order to deal with and intimidate the native allies of the French.
There is a very limited likelihood that any Iroquois served with the New England militia. Most of the aboriginal peoples recruited into the New England forces came from those living within the colonies. A few companies had a noticeable proportion of aboriginal recruits based on the geographic area the company was raised, but overall the numbers were small, and the recruits were raised individually rather than in groups.
