I think the Haida are pretty cool, and the Ojibwa, just to break from the obligatory Aztec, Inca, and Iroquois.

Maya and Moche. The archaeology is still very young and the vastness of the civilization is starting to emerge.

I realize you won't fly over just to see this, but wanted to let you know about it.

Those that see it claim it's realistic and very well performed.
Hey thanks jegates!

Here is an article about Shawnee placenames
Quote:

The name "Shawnee" is an English adaptation of the term
Shaawana, by
which the Shawnee Indians named themselves in their own language. Voegelin
(1938-40: 318) lists
"saawanwa 'Shawnee (tribe or individual),' adding saawanwaki

beside
saawanooki 'the Shawnee (plural).' Another white adaptation is Savannah,

name of both the city and the river in Georgia, where, in the 1600's, Shawnee
Indians were first encountered by Whites.
Eastern Shawnee, that is. A western

portion of the tribe lived, entirely separate from the eastern one, along the Cumberland
River in Kentucky and Tennessee. Within only a few years o jeach other,
before 1720, both halves of the Shawnee nation, hard pressed by warfare with other
Indians allied against them, started to migrate. The eastern Shawnee wandered
north, settled in Pennsylvania for a while, but, uprooted again, traveled westward
and finally reached the Ohio country. Here, about 1750, they were united, for
the first time in their history, with the western half of their tribe (Hodge, 1907,
Quote:

1910: 535).

Thanks for the info Zeno. I live near Cincinnati, Ohio and work across the river in Kentucky. This area is rich in Shawnee history. Author, Allan Eckert wrote a lot of books about how this area was settled and they are very good. If you get a chance, I think you would enjoy them. One of his first books, The Frontiersmen is so good it's hard to put down.

I'm gonna try to pick it up some time. My interest in them began when reading as a kid "Tecumseh" by James Alexander Thom

edit: in English the title is "Panther in the Sky", which is what Tecumseh means in the Shawnee language.
