Stephen Warren traces the transformation in Shawnee sociopolitical organization over seventy years as it changed from village-centric, multi-tribe kin groups to an institutionalized national government led by wealthy men with only marginal kin ties to the people they claimed to represent. The Shawnee and Their Neighbors, 1795-1870 lays bare the nexus of myth and history produced by Shawnee interpreters with a telling analysis of their vested interests in modernizing the tribes. Until recently, historians have assumed that Central Algonquians derive from politically unified tribes, but by analyzing the crucial role that individuals, institutions, and policies played in shaping modern tribal governments, a messier, more complicated history of migration and conflict emerges.
