Welcome to the Absentee Shawnee Tribe

Providing Tribal Members With Information.

The Absentee Shawnee Tribe is primarily located in the heart of central Oklahoma with approximately 4,343 as of 3-7-18 enrollment record living in all parts of the world. Our tribal government complex is located in Shawnee Oklahoma. Our logo features Tecumseh, a Shawnee warrior and visionary leader, who worked to unite tribes in a common homeland where Indians could live under their own laws and leaders. He died in October 1813, in battle near the area of present day Thamesville, in Toronto, Canada. The LI-SI-WI-NWI in our logo means "Among the Shawnee".
