Piqua Shawnee Early History - Alabama
Piqua Shawnee Tribe – Early historical records show that the Shawnee were inhabitants of Lawrence county of North Alabama. They were forced from the Tennessee Valley by the combined efforts of the Chickasaw and Cherokee.
The state of Alabama has long been the home of many Shawnee people. In fact, some historians state that perhaps the Shawnee people have inhabited Alabama for a longer period of time than any other geographic region. Some archaeologists set the date of 1685 as the first evidence of Shawnee settlement in Alabama.
