The last half of the eighteenth century was a time of decline and
retreat for the Native Americans of the Eastern Woodlands and Great
Lakes region. Their world was one of endless warfare and ravaging
disease. During this dark and tumultuous time a shining leader was born
among the Shawnee. On the night he was born, in the spring of 1768, a
brilliant comet trailed across the heavens. In honor of this celestial
event, his father, Puckeshinwa named him "Panther Crossing The Sky" or
in his native tongue Tecumseh.
