The Shawnee Indians are originally Northeast American Indian tribes. Today they reside mainly in Oklahoma where the tribes are now headquartered. They live on what is technically considered trust land but is also called a reservation. The name Shawnee, when translated, means Southerner. Although the Shawnee tended to move around a lot, historically, there are several states where they were known to have large populations. They include present day Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Maryland, Indiana and Pennsylvania. The below list of information about the Shawnee Indians is broken down into interesting facts about the tribe including why their language is almost extinct today.
