Long Description:
The statue sits in a small green space in Vincinnes near the Wabash River (I could find no evidence it is a named park.)

The sign at the site reads:

"Chief Tecumseh

The great Shawnee leader lives on as a symbol of Native pride and Pan-Indian identity. In the years 1810 and 1811 Tecumseh defended the rights of his people in meetings in Vincennes with William Henry Harrison, Governor of the Indiana Territory.

Tecumseh was chosen for Vincennes because in 1810-1811 he met here with William Henry Harrison, who was governor of the Indiana Territory, to discuss issues related to tribal land being ceded to the United States.
