This short quotation from the biography of TECUMSEH sets out the dilemma posed by the war for natives:

“It was and is impossible to cast Tecumseh as a Canadian patriot first and an Indian second. His loyalty was never to Canada or even to the British in Canada. It was to a dream of a pan-Indian movement that would secure for his people the land necessary for them to continue their way of life.”
