BONUS: WARTIME LIVE! "Guyasuta and the Fall of Indian America"
For nearly fifty years the Iroquois chief Guyasuta battled for the sovereignty and future of his people. Beginning his career with a 21 year old George Washington, Guyasuta would eventually come to fight the young Virginian in a catastrophic French alliance. Instrumental next in the Indian rebellion of 1763, Guyasuta waged a war of terror and violence against British settlements before ultimately succumbing to European control. Although he served as a peace chief early in the American Revolution, his eventual siding with the British Empire appeared to doom his people. Spanning over seven decades, Guyasuta’s life offers a front row seat to the fall of Indian America. Remember, an all new season of Wartime premieres Feb. 28!
