The Miami are a Native American nation originally found in what is now Indiana, southwest Michigan, and western Ohio. The Miami Tribe of Oklahoma is the only federally recognized tribe of Miami Indians in the United States. Another unrecognized tribe is the Miami Nation of Indiana.
U.S. government did not trust the neutrality of the Miamis & US forces attacked Kekionga during the Northwest Indian War. Each attack was repulsed. St. Clair's Defeat was the worst defeat of an American army by Native Americans in U.S. history. This ended with the Battle of Fallen Timbers and Treaty of Greenville. Those Miami who still resented the United States gathered around Ouiatenon and Prophetstown, where Shawnee Chief Tecumseh led a coalition of Native American nations.
My native american heritage - Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, Blackfoot, Iroquois, and Nez Perce. Pinned by indus® in honor of the indigenous people of North America who have influenced our indigenous medicine and spirituality by virtue of their being a member of a tribe from the Western Region through the Plains including the beginning of time until tomorrow.
