As a leader of the Shawnee tribe and a spokesman for the Western Indian he resolutely resisted encroachment on their territory.

Through his efforts and under his leadership the Indian Tribes for a time combined in confederation in an attempt to create an Indian Nation in the Ohio Valley - Great Lakes Area. He disappeared while leading the combined Indian force at the battle of the Thames, October 5th, 1813.
