"Tecumseh's Vision" recalls Shawnee brothers Tenskwatawa and Tecumseh. In 1805, Tenskwatawa -- considered a prophet -- had a vision that Indians should reject white culture. Tecumseh, in turn, led an alliance of tribes to stop the whites' westward push, as well as a partnership with the British during the War of 1812. The coalition he had forged, however, fell apart following his death in 1813 during the Battle of the Thames.
