Share The Worlds the Shawnees Made: Migration and Violence in Early America

Event Details

In 1779, Shawnees from Chillicothe, a community in the Ohio country, told the British, “We have always been the frontier.” Their statement challenges an oft-held belief that American Indians derive their unique identities from long­standing ties to native lands. By tracking Shawnee people and migrations from 1400 to 1754, Stephen Warren illus­trates how Shawnees made a life for themselves at the cross­roads of empires and competing tribes, embracing mobility and often moving willingly toward violent borderlands. By the middle of the eighteenth century, the Shawnees lived in the eastern half of North America and used their knowledge to foster notions of pan-Indian identity that shaped relations between Native Americans and settlers in the revolutionary era and beyond.

Stephen Warren is Associate Professor of History at Augustana College and was a historian for the PBS documentary “We Shall Remain,” which aired in 2009.

Free for Filson Members; $10 for non-members.
