As a result of hostility under Hopocan , Gelelemend , by an invitation of the Officier in command of the Pittsburgh garrison moved his band to an island in the Allegheny River. They would be under the protection of the soldiers. However, they were not protected from a party of white murderers who massacred about one hundred Christian Delawares at Guadenhutten in 1782.
