2 Interactive

3 Talk about miscommunication…. August 1810 William Henry Harrison, Governor of the Indiana Territory, meets with Chief Tecumseh with 30 members of the Shawnee nation looking on.


5 Harrison’s Assistant says to Tecumseh, “Your father requests you sit by his side” What do you think Harrison’s assistant meant by this? What did Tecumseh feel it meant?


7 What Tecumseh thinks…. “ My Father! The Great Spirit is my Father!…The earth is my mother…Houses are made for white men to hold councils in. Indians hold theirs in open air.”

8 Tecumseh Wants to Push Back Settlers Remember almost one million settlers moved West of Appalachians by 1810. Many conflicts broke out between American Indians and the settlers. Treaties were made between the United States and the Indians, many times ignored.

9 Treaty of Greenville XCbr6A XCbr6A

10 Treaty Of Greenville Made in 1795 between Miamis and other Indian nations with the United States They gave up land that we call Ohio now and in return, they received $20,000 and promise of more money as long as there was peace.

11 Tecumseh’s Confederation Ohio became a state in 1803 Settlers kept moving west into Indiana Tecumseh and his brother Tenskwatawa (the Prophet) vow to keep settlers out.

12 In 1808, The Prophet builds a village for his followers along the Tippecanoe Creek in the Indiana Territory. Tecumseh organizes Indians into a confederation or league.

13 “Everywhere our people have passed away, as the snow of the mountains melts in May. We no longer rule the forest. The game has gone like our hunting grounds. Even our lands are nearly all gone. Yes, my brothers, our campfires are few. Those that still burn we must draw together. Behold what the white man has done to our people! Gone are the Pequot, the Narraganset, the Powhatan, the Tuscarora and the Coree.... We can no longer trust the white man. We gave him our tobacco and our maize. What happened? Now there is hardly land for us to grow these holy plants.

14 White men have built their castles where the Indians’ hunting grounds once were, and now they are coming into your mountain glens. Soon there will be no place for the Cherokee to hunt the deer and the bear. The tomahawk of the Shawnee is ready. Will the Cherokee raise the tomahawk? Will the Cherokee join their brothers the Shawnee?”
