Example text

38 This collaboration was based on much more than mere political expediency. Intermarriages between Shawnees and their neighbors bound individuals with diverse ethnic and linguistic backgrounds together as families. Elite Shawnee women played a major role in constructing such networks. One such woman was Weenepeeweytah, a “Cousin” of a lower Susquehanna Shawnee headman “The Greatest Travellers in America” known as Savannah. She married a noted Seneca man named Sawantaeny whose networks extended from the Potomac River to Iroquoia.

Postcontact Shawnee mšikamekwis housed not only council meetings, but also town rituals and nighttime social dances that drew the community together for prayer, entertainment, and celebration.

This development probably demonstrates increasing interaction, visiting, and intermarriage among the Fort Ancient communities.
