Can anyone tell me which tribes may been living in Pennsylvania around 1815 to 1820?

There were no Indians living in western Pennsylvania in that time period as they had left the area during the late 1700s. Before that, it was mainly hunting grounds with no real permanent Indian settlements.

Hi,

There were several tribes that lived in Pa in the early 1800's. Location is important. Mohawk, Onondoga, Deleware ect. Exactly when and where is important.

Pennsylvania state has history of native americans on one of it's web sites. Some tribes were driven off to other states. One tribe still fights for recognition.

Good Luck in your endevor

Oh,

I am native American. My family lived in PA from the 1700 to about 1900. There were and are lots of Native American's living in Pa. I'm not sure why the other person posted that, but there are lots of sites to assist you with your quest. Most will tell you to learn your history first.

Most tribe members were driven out, not all. There are still Native American's there. WE ARE NOT GONE, JUST DON'T HAVE RESERVATIONS.

Best Regards

It would be helpful if you could provide a list of Federally or State Recognized Tribes/Nation currently located in Pennsylvania.

I am also a descendent of the Native Americans who lived in PA in the early 1800's and onward....just because we are not recognized by the U.S. government, does not mean that we do not exist. Government recognition is just a way to continue with the genocide. 6 out of 10 Americans who had family in the U.S. from the 1600's have Native blood and don't even know it.

That's not true. My relatives were full blood Native Americans in Verona, Pa (western Pennsylvania) in the 1800s.

My relatives are full blooded Native American. One of the tribes were black foot, Algonquin, I can't exactly remember all. Here's some links:
