The document I’m analyzing is Tecumseh’s speech to the Osages that was written in the winter of 1811-1812. I chose this speech by Tecumseh, a Shawnee leader, because he made an effort to do everything he can to not let the white people infiltrate the grounds on which he built his life on. He brings up the issue that the reason why the others tribes didn’t survive or was forced off their land was because they didn’t help each other out. The same thing will happen to the Shawnee tribe and the Osages if they do not form an alliance. Tecumseh didn’t stand by and let the White settlers, businesses and the US army take over his home, he spoke out to different tribes to get everyone that was left to unite and defend what is theirs. Tecumseh also brings up the point that they have treated the white men with hospitality and warmth and in return get nothing but animosity. This source is reliable because during this time there was a war going on to drive the Indians off their land either by force or death. The larger historical context is that there is an ethnic cleansing going on, the white settlers’ invaded territories belonging to the Indians and took their lands. The white people wanted to settle east of Mississippi in the United States and in order to do that they had to get rid of the Indians, any way possible. Prior to reading this speech I never knew how the white people got the Indians to leave their homes. The white men think they’re superior just because they have weapons and a religion. The Indians have someone they believe in too and they call him the Great Spirit. The white men were so selfish and greedy that instead of staying in their own land they felt the need to take over territories that fed a whole tribe. By taking away the lands the Indians would have to start again, meaning they could starve or die from fatigue or malnutrition by traveling, and hoping others won’t come and do the same. The bias is that Tecumseh is an Indian himself, he knows the
trying to express to the Osage (other red people) that all red people need to unite because if they do, they can kill the white people and get vengeance. I think that Tecumseh stressed over and over that they needed to destroy the white people because that was the only way to stop the evil. For example in his speech, he states, “ We, ourselves, are threatened with a great evil; nothing will pacify them but the destruction of all the red men". In addition, according to his speech, he alerted, “they will….
your death song, and die like a hero going home.” Tecumseh died nearly two hundred years ago, yet his story lives on to inspire and intrigue many. You may wonder: Why was this Indian chief so important to our country’s history? Let’s first explore Tecumseh’s early life, which in turn impacted his adulthood and made him one of the greatest Indian chiefs of all time.
Tecumseh, one of seven children, was born on March 9, 1768 just outside of present-day Xenia, Ohio. His father, Pucksinwah, was a Shawnee….

I chose to summarize the speech of Shawnee Chief Tecumseh’s address to General William Henry Harrison. Chief Tecumseh starts his speech by addressing what type of person he is and who he has made himself to by. He is speaking to General Harrison about the division, loss, and sale or Indian lands. He believes the land is provided for everyone not for division among men. He warns of the trouble to be foreseen if village chiefs are continued to be destroyed and the war it will create between the….
