This tribe were originally nomads who were always moving from one place to another. They migrated across many areas in the Northeast and Southeast. They were moving from one place to another in search of farming land and animals to hunt which made them to be hunters and farmers. 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. After they have migrated they adopted a lifestyle which was going in line with the climate, natural resources and the geographical set up. You find that some of them who were nomads decided to adopt the native Indian culture. Others were also blended into a nation known as Cherokee as a result of the constant civil war in America. They lived in different places depending with their major economic practices. Like we had the nomadic Shawnee who lived in birchbark houses which were majorly found in the Woodland areas.
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. The resources that were available in the area they were living in could determine what they were eating. There is one group that primarily depended on meat from buffalo, elk, deer and wild turkey which they eating with some roots and vegetables. Others who were living in the woodlands were eating fish, squirrel, deer, raccoon, bear and beaver which was supplemented with corn maize, pumpkin, squash and beans. The majority of people who inhabited Southeast part were majorly eating rabbits, wild hogs, turkeys, eagles which were 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. These weapons were used for defense, hunting and maybe farming activities. Being that they were dressing like Europeans but they had different types of cloths depending with the 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.
