    Native Languages of the Shawnee (Shawano, Savannah, Sewanee)

    Language: Shawnee is an Algonquian language spoken by 200 people in Oklahoma. It is most closely related to the Sauk-Fox and Kickapoo languages. Shawnee is a polysynthetic language with complex verb morphology and fairly free word order.
    People: Originally from the Ohio-Pennsylvania area, the Shawnee tribe was migratory, with villages scattered from Illinois to New York state and as far south as Georgia. They were rounded up and sent to Oklahoma by the US government in the nineteenth century, where 14,000 Shawnee Indians still live today.
