The Mingo Indians were Native Americans who settled in the Ohio Valley during the mid-17th Century. THey were related to the Delaware and Iroquoise Indians. One of the most famous Mingo leaders (but not a Chief) was "Chief Logan", who had good relations with white settlers until his family was brutally murdered. After exacting revenge, he lived peacefully with the white settlers once again. However, the Indian Removal Act, signed by Andrew Jackson, forced the Mingos and other Native Americans to move west, where they settled in Kansas.
