During the 1800s, Native Americans experienced significant changes in their ways of life. Government policy forced Native Americans to leave their homes, often sending them westward to reservations. Those who did not leave were either imprisoned or forced to adapt to European-American culture. Native Americans resisted these forced changes in a number of ways. While some took the government to court to debate whether or not the changes were legal, others took up more drastic means to assert their rights.

One Native American leader was Tecumseh. A member of the Shawneeh tribe, Tecumseh defended Native American rights to land by organizing various tribes of Native Americans against the U.S. Government in the Ohio Valley and Indiana territories. With the aid of his brother, a prophet named Tenskwatawa, Tecumseh led a series of attacks against the United States during the War of 1812. Though his rebellion was defeated, Tecumseh’s War represented the willingness and desire of Native Americans to unite across tribal lines to defend their land, rights, and way of life in the face of changing times.
