The Miami natives originally lived in Indiana, Illinois, and southern Michigan at the time of European colonization of North America. They moved into the Maumee Valley around 1700. They soon became the most powerful American Indian tribe in Ohio.
The main migrated tribes include the Lenape (Delaware), Miami, Ottawa, Seneca and Wyandot. Several other tribes migrated in and out of Ohio, but these five represent the greatest share of the Indigenous population. The two tribes that migrated toward the present day Toledo region were the Ottawa and Seneca.
Miami Tribe Population The current population of the Miami Tribe is 7500 people. About 5000 people live in Oklahoma and about 2500 people in Indiana.
Shawnee, an Algonquian-speaking North American Indian people who lived in the central Ohio River valley.
The 1838 forced 1,000-mile migration of more than 16,000 Cherokee claimed the lives of 4,000 to 6,000 tribe members. The Indian Removal Act of 1830 also applied to tribes north of the Ohio River. In Ohio that included the Seneca, Delaware, Shawnee, Ottawa and Wyandot.
They lived in villages of small oval houses with walls made of woven reeds. Each Miami village also had a larger wooden council house. Today, Native Americans only build a reed house for fun or to connect with their heritage, not for shelter. Most Miamis live in modern houses and apartment buildings, just like you.
They arrived and began a settlement on Sugar Creek in 1846. By the end of 1847 there were eleven hundred of them on their reservation, but half of them died the following year.
Choctaw, North American Indian tribe of Muskogean linguistic stock that traditionally lived in what is now southeastern Mississippi.
The Mingo lived along the riverbanks of the Scioto and Sandusky Rivers, (near present- day Columbus and Steubenville). The Mingo tribe was formed by members of the Iroquois and other tribes; hunters and concurred peoples.
The Shawnee Tribe is a federally recognized sovereign nation with about 3,200 tribal citizens as of 2020. Shawnee citizens reside not only in Oklahoma, but also live and work throughout the world.
Today, the Shawnee are comprised of three federally recognized American Indian tribes—the Absentee Shawnee Tribe, located near Shawnee, Oklahoma; Eastern Shawnee Tribe, located near Wyandotte, Oklahoma; and the Shawnee Tribe, located in Miami, Oklahoma.
Most scholars agree that the Cherokees, an Iroquoian-speaking people, have lived in what is today the Southeastern United States —Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama—since at least A.D. 1000.
As stated the Cherokee tribe is now located in present day Oklahoma. But why Oklahoma? As stated in www.cherokee.org a website with all types of information about the past and present of the Cherokee tribe says that the reason for the Cherokee tribe moving to Oklahoma was because of Indian Removal Act.
Treaties after 1818 involved purchase or cession of reservations, and Indians were removed to out of state Indian Territory. As of the 20th Century, there are no Indian reservations in Ohio, and no federally recognized Indian tribes in Ohio.
