(or Batisquan) was a chief of the Algonkin
people in the area of Trois-Rivières
. He met Samuel de Champlain
upon his return to Quebec
and held a feast for him. In 1611, Champlain met Batiscan again, and the chief provided him with useful information about other tribes in the area, although he declined to furnish the French with guides. In 1629, Champlain suggested that Batiscan be one of five chiefs to form a council, and the proposition was adopted by a general meeting of Natives shortly before the British conquest of Quebec.
