Chapter 1: Rise of the Shawnee
Dealing with the enemies of Shawnee
It was year 1399 according to the historians of later times when the Shawnee Elders received their divine quest to unify all tribes under the panther flag. Shawnee was a tribe in what was known as North America in the later days, situated in the midlands isolated from the Great Sea. The area of Southern States as some would later call it was divided by three tribes, the Shawnee in the North, Cherokees on the middle and Creeks in the south and at the coast.
Shawnee had elected Hokoleskwa as their High Elder and Tecumshe Shamokin as the great advisor to lead the divine quest received from the ancestors.
The first mission given to Hokoleskwa was to build an mighty army for the tribe, an army that could challenge any enemy the Shawnees would face.
To gain the support of the shamans Hokoleskwa encourage divination trough out the tribes lands.
In December 1399 the Shawnee armies crossed in to the Cherokee lands in the name of the holy spirits.
Paxinos Hathawkala was tasked with the leading the armies to glorious victories against the Cherokee unbelievers.
To ensure that the Creeks wouldn't cause no trouble Hokoleskwa signed an alliance with them, for now.
But the people thought that Hokoleskwa was incapable of ruling the tribe as the conquest of Cherokee was taking too long.
To gain loyalty and to break the moral of the enemy the cherokee culture was added as an equal to the shawnee culture.
July 1400 Cherokee leaders were executed and the lands were now in the hands of Shawnee.
But the quest wasn't over yet, there was still need for fresh land and fishing grounds.
And soon as the Shawnee armies had been reorganized from the last war Hokoleskwa broke the alliance he had with the Creeks and marched to Muskogee.
Instead of being satisfied with the access to the Great Sea, Hokoleskwa annexed the Creeks.
