Shawnee tribe were the nomadic meaning they were moving from place to another. They migrated across many areas in the Northeast and Southeast. Their economic practice was majorly hunting and farming confirming that they were in search of farming land and wild animals to hunt. In the process of moving from one place to another they adopted European way of dressing. This tribe was also headed by chiefs such as Cornstalk, Blue Jacket and Tecumseh.
Before they migrated to their current place America they were living in Tennessee region around Cumberland river. In this region they adopted a lifestyle that were best suited to the climate, geographical set up and the natural resources that were available in those particular regions. You can confuse some of the members of this tribe with Indians since they adopted native Indian culture as a result of their nomadic life. Others were also blended into a nation known as Cherokee as a result of the constant civil war in America. You could not find them living in the same area since they were considering their economic practice. A group that was living in woodlands lived in birchbark houses.
They made this their houses in a small cone shaped with arched roofs that were majorly made with some wooden frames. Another thing is that they covered these wooden frames using the buffalo hides due to the fact that buffalo was the most dominant animal in that area. This house was usually about 8-10 feet tall and 10-15 wide.
Another thing about the Piqua Shawnee is that they were speaking their native language known as Algonquian. They were also eating different food substances depending with the resources found in the area. There is one group that primarily depended on meat from buffalo, elk, deer and wild turkey which they eating with some roots and vegetables. The people who were living in woodlands were eating small game such as squirrel, fish, deer, raccoon and they supplemented this with corn, squash and beans. We also have a group of people who inhabited Southeast part who were eating rabbits, wild hogs, turkeys, eagles which was supplemented with corn, beans, dried fruits, pumpkins and nuts.
Another thing about Shawnee is that they were using bows, arrows, hatchet, axes, spears, lenses, knives and riffles. With these weapons they were able to protect themselves, do hunting and some they were using in the farm. Apart from that, their dressing code was being determined by the climate and season. You find that they were dressing in finger tunics, shirts and leggings during cold rainy season while in warm weather they were dressing in breach cloths.
