You have the wrong war here, undustrial. Joseph Brant was a war chief of the Mohawk during the American Revolution. The Six Nations were given the land on the Grand after that conflict, almost 30 years before the War of 1812. During the 1812 war only a portion of the Six Nations were active but their role important.

Tecumseh was one of several Aboriginal leaders and he was killed in the one battle he fought in Canada. More involved in the defence of Canada were Six Nations from the Grand, the so-called Seven Nations of Canada, Anishabe people from the upper Lakes, Mississauga living in British North America, etc. all led by their own War chiefs.
