Pontiac, or Obwandiyag (c. 1720 – 20 April 1769), was an Ottawa war chief best known for his role in Pontiac's Rebellion.

After the terms of the Treaty of Easton in 1758 were broken by the British, a loose confederation of indigenous native American tribes launched Pontiac's Rebellion against William Johnson in 1763. During the rebellion, Pontiac became the most prominent and feared of the native leaders, and he used a toothed war club in battle.

Sometime around 1774, the Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton recovered Pontiac's club, following the war chief's assassination by a Peoria warrior five years prior.
