The Fredonians were a tribe which were once based in the Grand Canyon. Fredonians most likely draw their name from Fredonia, Arizona, a small town known as the gateway to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

Background[edit | edit source]

At war with the Blackfoot Tribe, the Fredonians were the 3rd tribe to surrender to Caesar's Legion and be assimilated into their ranks.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • The Marx brothers 1933 film Duck Soup is set in the fictional country of Freedonia, whose citizens are referred to as "Freedonians".
  • Freedonia was also temporarily used as a demonym for citizens of the United States of America shortly after the American Revolution.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The Fredonians are mentioned only in Fallout: New Vegas.

  1. The Courier: "What happened to the tribes?"
    Caesar: "The Kaibabs joined me, and the Fredonians after that - all the pissant tribes, with names that should be forgotten. I knew from the start I'd need to eradicate this plague of tribal identities, replacing them with a monolithic culture, a uniform identity. So that's what I did, once my confederation of tribes was large enough. I crowned myself Caesar and created a single Great Tribe - my Legion. I sent Calhoun, the Follower captured with me, back West with a message that I should not be interfered with. Joshua Graham, the Mormon interpreter, stayed with me and served as my first Legatus."
