Tecumseh, Native America and the other American Dream
Tecumseh, for many of us it’s a name that conjures up images of wide prairies, long headdress, old Westerns on a Saturday afternoon. But Tecumseh was a man with a vision, and his vision was a united Native American nation. Along with his brother, Tenskwatawa “the Prophet”, Tecumseh managed to form a confederacy of several tribes and fought passionately for their beliefs. Documentary filmmaker Ric Burns has recently completed a piece on Tecumseh for the PBS series “We Shall Remain”. Join us on Monday when we talk with Burns about his work and Tecumseh.
