ORCAMPION INDIANS. This name developed from a printing error in one edition of Henri Joutel's journal of the La Salle expedition. No Indian group with the name Orcampion (Orcamipia, Orcampiou) seems to have existed. The names of two separate Indian groups, Orcan and Piou, were combined to give an erroneous hybrid name. See ORCAN INDIANS; PIOU INDIANS.
