Hello all,
I am thinking of doing an Indian/captive of the Indians portrayal. Are there any suggestions as to what tribe to portray or what tribe to have been a captive of. I am part of a militia unit in Central Indiana that does War of 1812 events. Thanks so much for your help!

one good place to start........
Scouuwa: James Smith's Indian Captivity Narrative. (Ohio: Ohio Historical Society, 1996)

His Stiry in his own words is also available online or downloadable in PDF -An account of the remarkable occurrences in the life and travels of Colonel James Smith (Late a citizen of Bourbon County, Kentucky) : during his captivity with the Indians, in the years 1755,'56, '57, '58, & '59 (1799)

Here is a reference that is more in tune with your time period.

The Falcon by John Tanner, 2000 Penguin Books.

He was captured as a boy, tried once to return to the white culture but ended up spending the rest of his life with the Native Americans.
