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.
