Sovereign Amonsoquath Band of Cherokee

THE SHAWNEE  



 The Shawano called the "A ni sa wa nu gi" us (the Cherokee) . They were

allies with Creek first then with Delaware . They were at the western border

of Cherokee country prior to arrival of the Whites . Along that border was

long periods of war then of peace then war. Of the all enemies the Shawano

was considered the greatest , their fierceness in battle and quickness of

attack quickly gave a warrior many honors when fighting them, but to their

allies they seem more trouble then they worth. When the Creek wanted to

make peace with Cherokee the Shawano seem the be first to want to break it .

After the Creek rid themselves of the Shawano . The Shawano went and allied

themselves with Delaware and after a bit the Delaware soon tired of

Shawano's warring ways especially after years of war with Cherokee . So the

Shawano were finally forced to make peace with Cherokee . With the arrival

of the Europeans all that changed the Shawano and Cherokee found themselves

fighting side by side instead against each other.
