Colonists had the mindset of expanding, not just expand South or North but West. Many people wanted to go Westward of the Appalachian mountains. Although there were several disputes about this, in 1770 the Ohio Indians, Shawnees invited hundreds of Indian leaders to gather at the town of Chillicothe on the Scioto River. There they opposed any further expansion. On top of that, the British did not appreciate it either, they were adamant on no expansion.
