The great Shawnee Chief Tecumseh’s (c.1768-1813) life has fed the imagination of scholars, artists, and poets for 200 years. His death has immortalized him as a legendary Canadian hero, and it is important to remember his objectives: Tecumseh fought heroically out of a desire to build an independent homeland for his people. Tecumseh’s name meant both “shooting star” and “crouching panther” as he was a dynamic leader and warrior.
