The Untold Story of Isaac Zane, White Eagle of the Wyandots


This is the untold story of Isaac Zane, who at the age of nine, was taken captive by Wyandot warriors in the South Potomac River Valley in 1763 during Pontiac's War. He was adopted into a loving, caring family and became completely assimilated as a Wyandot warrior, though his birth parents were white. No one on the colonial frontier know what happened to Isaac. Because Isaac was not heard from again for over twenty years, he was presumed dead. Isaac Zane was one of the hundreds of "White Indians" who chose not to return to colonial society when given the chance.
