The principal hypotheses are: that the move was voluntary and was due to climatic cooling; or that the nation was decimated, either because of inter-tribal wars or perhaps due to the propagation of mortal illnesses brought from Europe.
Hochelaga is an Iroquois word whose exact meaning we do not yet know.
