Our great leader Tecumthe died defending Our Land and People on October 5, 1813. He is quoted as once saying:
"When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home."
-- Tecumthe (Tecumseh), Shawnee
