For their help defending British borders in the war of 1812, the Six Nations were granted the Haldimand tract lining the Grand River, giving them a very large swath of modern-day Ontario. This was very important, since the Six Nations spanned the border, and lost a very large chunk of their American territory for siding against the US. Under Chief Joseph Brant (who succeeded Tecumseh), most of this territory was lost, and disputes over the actual title continue to this day (Douglas Creek etc).
