Hochelega (village) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (272 words)
Hochelaga was a large fortified village in northeastern North America, on the Saint Lawrence River, inhabited of Iroquoian-speaking people.
The village still existed when Cartier revisited the region, but had disappeared when Samuel de Champlain first arrived on the island.
It is generally believed that the village was abandoned for safety, as this was a time of warfare between the Iroquois, Hurons, and Algonquins.
