Shameful American history
Shawnee nation, Chief Tecumseh, historical research, historical places/events, historical figures, history and culture
The extensive publisher's blurb covers much of the info in this piece. The most outspoken and respected leader of his people, Chief Tecumseh, is rightly a major portion, with many quotations including this excerpt from a 1811 speech: "Where are (several neighboring tribes), they have vanished before the oppression and avarice of the white man. Sleep no longer. Will not the bones of our dead be plowed up and their graves turned into plowed fields." The people themselves later suffered under the 1830 Indian Removal Act. This is not a study of religion and cultural practices, yet an overview of these things is included. I learned a lot.
I got this in audio format, and Stacy Hinkle did a pretty good job of pronouncing the Indian names that I am familiar with as well as maintaining voice neutrality.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
This isn’t bad; it just isn’t as in depth as the others in the series. The most interesting part was about the migration.
