Illinois confederation

Illinoiskonfederationen, var en grupp på ca 12-13 stammar kring övre Mississippfloden. Stammarna var KaskaskiaCahokiaPeoriaTamaroaMoingwenaMichigameaChepoussaChinkoaCoiracoentanonEspeminkiaMaroa, and Tapouara. Samtliga grupper var algonkintalande, utom de siouxtalande Michigamea. (Kanske ett indicium på att de flesta siouxtalande nu drivits västerut). Vid mitten av 1700-talet hör vi bara talas om fem kvarvarande grupper. The Cahokia, Kaskaskia, Michigamea, Peoria, and Tamaroa.
