Blue Jacket

Blue Jacket

Blue Jacket was born around 1745, but it is not known where as there is no record of him until around the 1790s. His Indian name was Weyapiersenwah, although there is conjecture by many historians that perhaps he was actually Marmaduke Van Swerangen, a Virginia white boy captured by the Shawnee during the Revolutionary War. However, to add some light to this controversy, some people who claim to be descendents of Blue Jacket, have had DNA testing and as result of these tests, Blue Jacket was NOT of white ancestry. Whether he was a captured white boy, or of Shawnee descent, what is known is that he was a fearless leader of the Shawnees in the late 1700s.

Brief History | Eastern Shawnee

Proud to Be Eastern Shawnee – A Brief History of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe

By Chief Glenna J. Wallace

The Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma is one of three federally-recognized Shawnee tribes—the Absentee Shawnee near Shawnee, OK; the Eastern Shawnee in Ottawa County, OK near Seneca, MO; and the Shawnee Tribe headquartered in Miami, OK. Originally these three tribes were unified as the Shawnee Nation and lived throughout the region east of the Mississippi River. A highly nomadic and wandering group of people, they can be documented as living in three countries –United States, Canada and Mexico—and numerous states including Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Delaware, Kentucky, Indiana, , Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas and of course Oklahoma. Men were known as hunters or warriors and women as planters and gatherers. Because of their early geographic location and their lifestyle, the Shawnee People are generally known as Eastern Woodlands Indians. It is said that in the 1700’s a squirrel could go from treetop to treetop beginning in Illinois and ending in Delaware without ever touching the ground. Thus the Indians in this geographical area were known as Woodland Indians.
