Abstract:

Teedyuscung's unhappy story reveals much about the history and fate of the Indians who originally inhabited the land that became Pennsylvania. His personal history testifies to the changes wrought in the Indians' lives by their encounter with Europeans. Teedyuscung was born among Delaware Indians who lived near modern Trenton, New Jersey, in close contact with colonial society. Like many of his kin and neighbors, Teedyuscung grew up wearing European clothing and relying on iron axes and knives and other European-made goods for daily tasks. He learned to speak some English, converted to Christianity, and lived briefly in a missionary village on the Lehigh River. By the time Teedyuscung proclaimed himself "King of the Delawares," the pressures of the fur trade, missionary activity, and colonial settlement had soured European-Indian relations in Pennsylvania.
