Samantha Rudelich Tecumseh’s “Speech to the Osages” Tecumseh was a Shawnee Native American who lived in the Midwest and the North in the United States. His job as a qualified orator was to persuade tribes in the South to join him and other tribes in the North against the Americans that were taking their land and trying to control them. Tecumseh had seen tribes that had been wiped out.
Tecumseh’s speech 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.
Alarmed by the growing encroachment of whites squatting on Native American lands, the Shawnee Chief Tecumseh calls on all Indians to unite and resist. Born around 1768 near Springfield, Ohio.
Tecumseh's efforts to unite Native Americans in opposition to white expansionism. The meeting is perhaps most famous for the dramatic way in which it ended. At one point after having finished a two-hour speech against the treaty, Tecumseh apparently became furious with Winnemac, a Potawatomie leader who had signed the treaty.
