In 1775, just before the Americans declared their independence from Great Britain, a man named Cheucunsene (Dragging Canoe) declared war on the Virginians who were attempting to illegally purchase Kentucky for the Transylvania Land Company at the Treaty of Sycamore Shoals. Defecting from the Cherokee he relocated to the Chattanooga region, rallied thousands of warriors to him from over fourteen different Indian nations, and began diplomatically organizing an enormous Pan-Indian Confederacy with all of the leading war chiefs east of the Mississippi. Handing the United States its most humiliating defeat ever in 1791, he successfully established his union which evolved into the Western Confederacy with many of his young warriors going on to become legends among their various tribes. This is his story, the first book of a new genre called Nawodi Literature.
