The residents moved south to Great Meadows and the protection of the British.
Settlements were rarely permanent, as the people commonly moved to a new location after one or two generations, when the natural resources surrounding the village were exhausted. The Mingos were noted for having a bad reputation and were sometimes referred to as Blue Mingos or Black Mingos for their misdeeds. The tribes that occupied this part of the continent were centered near the Scioto and Ohio rivers, and their influence reached into present-day Indiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and New York.
