Pontiac or Obwandiyag (c. 1720 - April 20, 1769), was an Ottawa leader who became famous for his role in Pontiac's Rebellion (1763 - 1766), an American Indian struggle against the British military occupation of the Great Lakes region following the British victory in the French and Indian War. Historians disagree about Pontiac's importance in the war that bears his name. Nineteenth century accounts portrayed him as the mastermind and leader of the revolt, while some subsequent interpretations have depicted him as a local leader with limited overall influence.
