Main Goal:
unity of his people
particularly through a central Confederacy
Acomodationists vs. Traditionalists

Traditionalists: Native Americans that called for native purity by rejecting contact with whites

Tecumseh and Tenskwatawa were traditionalists
Battle of Fallen Timbers and the Treaty of Greenville

this Battle signified the end of the Pan-Indian movement

most damaging battle to the Americans between themselves and the Natives as far as casualties

Battle of Fallen Timbers lead directly to the Treaty of Greenville
War of 1812
As this war approached Tecumseh stressed the need for unity

Fought on the side of the British and the Canadians

Major force in American defeat

Without the help of Tecumseh and his people, modern Canadians would likely be American
Tenskwatawa (Lalawethica)
A religious man
brother to Tecumseh

later known as "The Prophet"

preachings of the need for unity became religious values

Tecumseh used his teachings to achieve his goals
Western Confederacy of the 1790s

pillaged and destroyed by Indiana Governor Harrison

Western Confederacy revived after by the brothers
Battle of Thames
surprise attack by the US

Tecumseh insisted on staying and fighting

Tecumseh dies during this battle

huge lose of allegiance
"It is you, the Americans, by such bad deeds, who push the red men to do mischief. You do not want unity among the tribes, and you destroy it. You try to make differences between them. We, their leaders, wish them to unite and consider their land the common property of all, but you try to keep them from this. You separate the tribes and deal with them that way, one by one, and advise them not to come into this union. Your states have set an example of forming a union among all the Fires, why should you censure the Indians for following that example?
But, brother, I mean to bring all the tribes together, in spite of you, and until I have finished, I will not go to visit your president. Maybe I will when I have finished, maybe. The reason I tell you this, you want, by making your distinctions of Indian tribes and allotting to each a particular tract of land, to set them against each other, and thus to weaken us."
- Tecumseh
