"Emotionally powerful." The Washington Post

The second episode of WE SHALL REMAIN, Tecumseh's Vision, tells the story of the Shawnee leader Tecumseh and his brother, Tenskwatawa, known as the Prophet. In the years following the American Revolution, the Prophet led a spiritual revival movement that drew thousands of followers from tribes across the Midwest. His brother forged a pan-Indian political and military alliance from that movement, coming closer than anyone since to creating an independent Indian state.

From directors Ric Burns (New York: A Documentary Film, The Donner Party, Eugene O'Neill) and Chris Eyre (Smoke Signals, Skinwalkers) this 90-minute film is a story of strength, pride, and pronounced courage.

To get a sneak preview of Tecumseh's Vision, watch the first chapter online now!

Thanks Kat. I will be sure to watch this. I have always had a special interest in the story of Tecumseh and the Shawnee because I grew up in the area where they lived.

Sadly I don't get PBS, but I will ask for it at our Library. So much is named for him in this area, You have inspired me to research this great leader so when I camp with my daughter at Battleground State Park, we can honor his spirit together.

Tecumseh-Celestial Panther-what a leader-what an innovator. This episode about him was simply superb.He's always been one of my big heroes. I was captivated. This is a remarkable experience. Thanks Kat.

Kat, my hubby and I watched the show last night and all I can say is THANK YOU for bringing this to our attention.

Being from England I learned so much about the history and what Life here is based on. It really explains how and why there are still so many false promises going on today. We Shall Remain is just what your folks have done, well done!
It is the government that hides and shames you that will suffer in the end.
