| caption= Shawnee with spear. The Shawnee were in Ohio in the 1600s. They were fierce warriors, fighting with the French until the French trading posts turned British. They fought with the British against the Americans during the American Revolution. Tecumseh -- a leader of an Ohio band of the Shawnee who organized a pan-tribal resistance movement against the Treaty of Fort Wayne -- tried to reunite Ohio-based American Indian peoples, but was defeated by General Anthony Wayne in the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811. In 1817, under the treaty of Fort Meigs, Ohio Shawnee -- joined by some Seneca -- were sent to live on three reservations in Northwest Ohio. Between 1831 and 1833, following the defeat of the Tecumseh resistance movement, Ohio-based Shawnee continued to organize to resist removal from their lands by the U.S. government. By the mid-1830s, via the U.S. Government's policy of forced removal of American Indians West of the Mississippi, most Shawnee were relocated to reservations in Oklahoma and Kansas.
<p>Today, the Shawnee are comprised of three federally recognized American Indian tribes—the Absentee Shawnee Tribe, located near Shawnee, Oklahoma; Eastern Shawnee Tribe, located near Wyandotte, Oklahoma; and the Shawnee Tribe, located in Miami, Oklahoma.
