Brief Profile

The Shawnee are a Native American people who consist of three federally recognized autonomous tribes: (1) the Absentee Shawnee near Shawnee, Oklahoma; (2) the Eastern Shawnee of Oklahoma in Ottawa County headquartered in Wyandotte, Oklahoma; and (3) The Shawnee Tribe (also known as Loyal Shawnee) headquartered in Miami, Oklahoma.

Historically, before removal by treaty and U.S. government acts, the Shawnee originally lived in a vast area east of the Mississippi that included Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.

Taking place in White Oak, Oklahoma, they observe their traditional Spring and Fall Bread Dance, the Green Corn ceremony, and stomp dances.

They adhere to Christianity, the Native American Church, or traditional tribal religion.
