Top 10 Most Famous Native Americans

2. Tecumseh

Tecumseh was the leader of Shawnee and the Tecumseh’s Confederacy. He was already exposed to warfare during adolescent years when the American Revolutionary War raged on. After the war ended, Shawnee people continuously distanced themselves from the Americans, because of their continuous territorial expansions. Tecumseh’s Confederacy allied with British force during the War of 1812 as an extension to the Tecumseh’s War. He was killed in 1813, during a battle with the Americans in Canada, which caused the disintegration of the Tecumseh’s Confederacy. Shawnee people were forced to sell their lands and migrated further west.
