 Ottawa Indian Tribe History
He adds that the ancient habitat of the Ottawa had been a quarter of Lake Huron, whence the fear of the Iroquois drove them, and whither were borne all their longings, as it were, to their native country.
The two tribes lived together until about 1700, when the Hurons removed to the vicinity of Detroit, while a portion of the Ottawa about this time seems to have obtained a foothold on the west shore of Lake Huron between Saginaw bay and Detroit, where the Potawatomi were probably in close union with them.
All the Ottawa lands along the west shore of Lake Michigan were ceded by various treaties, ending with the Chicago treaty of Sept. 26, 1833, wherein they agreed to remove to lands granted them on Missouri river in the north east corner of Kansas.

The state's motion asked for the dismissal on numerous grounds, including the tribe waited too long to stake its claim and the lawsuit was improperly hinged on treaties ratified with the federal government in 1805.

 [No title]
Speck argues the Tribe does not establish a justiciable dispute regarding the Tribe's commercial hunting and fishing rights because the Tribe is not present in Ohio and, without the Tribe's presence, the claim for fishing and hunting rights is not ripe.
Essentially, he tries to argue the Tribe is barred from bringing this action because is should have asserted its claims in front of the ICC (a res judicata type of argument).
The Tribe explains that the Tribe would have interpreted the treaties' language “so long as remain property of the United States” to mean that the rights remained as long as the property was within the United States' territorial jurisdiction.
