Welcome to the Ridgetop Shawnee Tribe of Indians




The Ridgetop Shawnee Tribe of Indians, also known as the Ridgetop Band of Shawnee, are a local group of people of Native American heritage who descend from Southeastern Kentucky's earliest mix-raced settlers. Many people of mixed heritage (White, Native American and African American) settled the rugged mountains of Southeastern Kentucky, Southwestern Virgina and Northeastern Tennessee in the late 18th and early to mid 19th centuries.

We formed in 2003, officially, with the goal of exploring our Native American heritage and to assist our youth and elderly. Our main goal is to teach our children of our Father and his Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
