The Shawnee[]

The Shawnee are an Algonquian-speaking ethnic group indigenous to North America. In colonial times they were a semi-migratory Native American nation, primarily inhabiting areas of the Ohio Valley, extending from what became Ohio and Kentucky eastward to West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Western Maryland; south to Alabama and South Carolina; and westward to Indiana, and Illinois. Pushed west by European-American pressure, the Shawnee migrated to Missouri and Kansas, with some removed to Indian Territory (Oklahoma) west of the Mississippi River in the 1830s. Other Shawnee did not remove to Oklahoma until after the Civil War. Made up of different historical and kinship groups, today there are three federally recognized Shawnee tribes, all headquartered in Oklahoma: the Absentee-Shawnee Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma, Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma, and Shawnee Tribe.


Tecumseh was a Shawnee chief and warrior who promoted resistance to the expansion of the United States onto Native American lands. A persuasive orator, Tecumseh traveled widely, forming a Native American confederacy and promoting inter-tribal unity. Although his efforts to unite Native Americans ended with his death in the War of 1812, he became an iconic folk hero in American, Indigenous, and Canadian popular history.

Dawn of Man[]

"The comet has arrived, oh chief Tecumseh of the Shawnee. Mentored by your brother Cheeseekau, and adopting philosophies of chiefs Blue Jacket and Joseph Brant, you sought to free your tribe from the external influence of the United States. With your brother, who preached to reject European influences, you established towns for Native people to live and began recruiting others to join your cause of independence. After the Treaty of Fort Wayne, you became more confrontational, building a large, intertribal confederacy, in which you travelled from tribe to tribe, looking for recruits. But while you were away from your capital, your people were defeated in the Battle of Tippecanoe. While you tried resurrecting your confederacy, seeking British help in the War of 1812, this devastating defeat was one from which you never recovered, and you died in battle two years later.

The time has come to right the course, oh Tecumseh, for your people are once again dispersed. It will take all your wisdom, strength, and courage, to build the intertribal confederacy once more, and relitigate the possibility of freedom for your people. Can you push out the influence of those who would do you harm? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Welcome to the place where the Shawnee live. We do not own the land. Land is like air and water. No one owns it here."

Defeat: "Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. I will not grovel to you. Let me be to my fate."
