Kispoko Sept of Ohio Shawnee

 

Welcome to our tribal home page. We have been proudly serving the Wapakoneta, Cridersville and surrounding community for over 100 decades. Our tribe is one of Ohio's finest!

The Shawnee under the leadership of Chief Blue Jacket and Chief Black Hoof  established themselves at the mouth of the Auglaize River and built the famous Council House at the present site of Wapakoneta, Ohio. At this new location munitions of war were regularly supplied to them by the British from Detroit and Canada.

Here at the Council House in the village of Wapakoneta, were to be assembled some of the greatest chieftans of Indian lore: Blue Jacket and his son, James Blue Jacket, Black Hoof (Catahecassa), Tecumseh, The Prophet, Peter Cornstalk, The Little Turtle, The Little Snake, Captain Logan, and others. However, after the treaty of Greenville, segments of the tribe started to migrate to Missouri. The final migration according to treaty was accomplished in 1832 when James Blue Jacket, who had enjoyed a flourishing trade in liquor, moved out with the last contingent.
