Tenskwatawa, a man who was not normal to others. His history was really different from others and they called it the Prophet. Tenskwatawa was always like compared to his brother Tecumseh and he never like lived up to be like him both physically and mentaly. Tenskwatawa was not a normal looking man, he was about average height and he was known for wearing jewerly- ecspecially small medals which he hung from his peirced nose and ears. What people noticed most about Tenskwatawa was that he had a personally damaged eye that alwasy stays closed. Tenskwatawa was not a likeable person, like not many people like him. He was not accepted in and groups and was not able to participate in many male activites- like fighting and hunting. The two major things Tenskwatawa liked to do was to drink and talk. He was not as good as a speaker as his brother was, but he was pretty good. Using his traits he became a medicine man in Tecumseh’s village. I think that they should of given more information on Tenskwatawa, ( some of the information above is from online) but they should have talked more about him and gave more facts i think because he was such a big part in the Battle of Tippecanoe. When his brother had left to go collect more Indians he left Tenskwatawa in charge of everything. When Tenskwatawa was in charge William Henery Harrison decided to attack and then that started the whole Battle of Tippecanoe. Unfortunitally William Harrison won and then they all burned down Tecunseh’s village. Because the Battle happened when Tenskwatawa was in charge when his brother came back he was really mad at Tenskwatawa because he was in charge and Harrison won and Harrisons troops had burned down Tecunseh’s village.
And if i was the editor of this book i would:
1. Interesting / more detail about:
* maybe his childhood
* Family life
*How he had 3 wives
*How he grew up with no parents
*Also how he was an alcoholic because he was like pretty much the laughing stock of his whole community.
2. Good deads?
* The only good deads he really did was he led poeple to be there own and go there own ways.
3. Bad things/ weaknesses:
* He really never learned how to hunt or even fight properly because the people in hi scommunity would not let him do these things ( mostly jsut the men)
*Because of the way he lookked he had no friends.
*When he was trying to like hunt on his own, he had an accident and it caused him his eye so it stayed shut forever.
The main things i would share are the 3 uptop^^ because those are good things bad things and upsetting thhings about him. I would basically just wright about his life and how he helped/ ruined the community and just pout little facts about him in there.
