Wenro Tribe

The Wenro Indians were an Iroquoian tribe of the northeastern woodlands, particularly Pennsylvania and New York state. They were relatives and allies of the Huron tribe. The Wenro language was never well recorded, but was clearly an Iroquoian language similar to Huron. The Wenros no longer exist as a distinct tribe. After being defeated in a war with the Iroquois Confederacy, the surviving Wenro people merged into the Huron-Wyandot tribe, where most Wenro descendants live today.
