The Mingo Indians were a small group of Native Americans related to the Iroquois Indians. They are sometimes called the Ohio Seneca Indians. By 1750, the Mingos had left the Iroquois homeland in the state of New York and migrated to the Ohio Country.

In the 1760s, the Mingo Indians lived in eastern Ohio near Steubenville. By the early 1770s, they had moved to central Ohio. One of their villages was on the banks of the Scioto River at the site of modern-day Columbus.

Captain William Crawford led an attack against a Mingo village on the Scioto River near what is now downtown Columbus, Ohio, at the close of Lord Dunmore’s War in 1774. By the 1800s, the Mingo Indians had villages along the Sandusky River as well as at Lewistown. The Mingos began to live with other tribes, hoping that together they would be able to stop the westward expansion of white settlers.

Some Mingo Indians lived with the Miami Indians, while others lived with the Shawnee Indians. In 1831, the United States forced the Mingos to sell their land, and the natives moved to reservations in the West.

Logan was a famous leader of the Mingo Indians.
