Until the Americans killed Tecumseh in 1813, he and his brother Tenskwatawa were the co-architects of the broadest pan-Indian confederation in United States history. In previous accounts of Tecumseh’s life, Tenskwatawa has been dismissed as a talentless charlatan.
However, historian Peter Cozzens now shows us that while Tecumseh was a brilliant diplomat and war leader, it was Tenskwatawa who created a vital doctrine of religious and cultural revitalization that unified the disparate tribes of the Old Northwest. Cozzens brings us to the forefront of the chaos and violence that characterized the young American Republic and presents the untold story of these Shawnee brothers—the two most significant siblings in Native American history.
