Room 210 (Hynes Convention Center)
Ric Burns, writer and producer; Ric Burns and Chris Eyre, directors (American Experience, 2009). Tecumseh’s Vision recreates the story of the Shawnee leader Tecumseh and his brother Tenskwatawa, known as the Prophet. After the American Revolution, the Prophet led a spiritual revival movement that drew thousands of followers from Indian nations across the Midwest of the United States. His brother forged a pan-Indian political and military alliance from that movement to forge an independent Indian state. Colin G. Calloway (Dartmouth College), a consultant on the film, will introduce the film and lead a discussion afterward.
