Brant was born in Ohio, the son of Tehonwaghkwangeraghkwa of Canajoharie, New York, and his wife, Margaret.
Brant urged the Indians south of the Great Lakes to resist the pretensions of the United States to have won land north of the Ohio River by conquest, and under his guidance they formed a pan-tribal alliance at a congress upon the Sandusjy in 1783.
Brant's most disastrous policy was his sale or lease of land on the Grand to invest stocks for an annuity for the Indians.
