As part of the funding agreement between the Dictionary of Canadian Biography and the Canadian Museum of History, we invite readers to take part in a short survey.

I’ll take the survey now.

Remind me later.

Don’t show me this message again.

I have already answered the survey.

Natives

This short quotation from the biography of TECUMSEH sets out the dilemma posed by the war for natives:

“It was and is impossible to cast Tecumseh as a Canadian patriot first and an Indian second. His loyalty was never to Canada or even to the British in Canada. It was to a dream of a pan-Indian movement that would secure for his people the land necessary for them to continue their way of life.”

If you wish to know more about the impact of the war on native populations, we invite you to explore the list of biographies.
