The History of the Kickapoo // The Kickapoo Indians are an Algonquian-speaking tribe of Native Americans. The name “Kickapoo” translates to “Stands here and there,” and refers to the tribe’s migratory patterns. Today there are three federally recognized tribes in the United States.
kickapoo indians - The Kiikaapoi were one of many Great Lakes Tribes that occupied the western portion of the woodland area in southern Michigan near Lake Erie. However, European invasion changed the lives and cultures of these woodland tribes forever. When the Iroquois War (1641-1701) occurred it forced many northeastern tribes west into the Great Lakes Region
kickapoo indians - They played a prominent part in the history of this region up to the close of the War of 1812, aiding Tecumseh in his efforts against the United States, while many Kickapoo fought with Black Hawk in 1832. In 1837 Kickapoo warriors to the number of 100 were engaged by the United States to go, in connection with other western Indians, to fight the Seminole of Florida.
kickapoo indians - The Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas has been in its present area since the 1832 Treaty of Castor Hill where the Kickapoo lived near the Missouri River. The Treaty of 1854 with the Kickapoo Tribe ceded over 600,000 acres of land to the US Government but retained approximately 150,000 acres of land.
Arrowheads - Jon Lander - found by my great grandfather in the vicinity of Kickapoo, KS late 1800s early 1900s, IIRC. One of them is metal. Really wild to think that maybe several hundred years ago a Kansa or Plains indian/native American was walking around wondering where this one landed.
kickapoo indians - When the Kickapoo in 1819 ceded their lands, covering nearly half the state of Illinois, they could not go to the reservation asaigned to them in Missouri because it was still occupied by the hostile Osage. Half the tribe emigrated instead to Spanish territory in Texas, and the rest were ready to follow when the Government agents intervened, endeavoring to induce them to remove to Missouri.
