Decendants of the mound builder culture, the Shawnee are native to Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. A far ranging people, they held alliances and trade agreements with several of their neighboring peoples. Displaced by the U.S. government, the tribe settled in what is today Oklahoma.

Tecumseh

By:Robert MangumEmily Xia

Known for their wood carving, pottery and intricate beadwork called "Wampum", the Shawnee were skilled artisans. Using the natural world around them, their traditional dwelling was a Wigwam made from treebark and they created dug-out canoes which helped them navigate the great lakes region.

The Shawnee hunted deer and wild turkey. They also were skilled fishermen and farmed primarily squash and corn.
