The Scots-Irish had a complex relationship with the Indian tribes, one of adversaries, but also one of shared values and traditional warrior based society. As the Scots-Irish followed the frontier there was intermarriage between Scots-Irish and Indian families and alliances and shared kinships. The Indian Nations in eastern Oklahoma sided with the Confederacy during the war and like the Scots-Irish of the Southern hill country and Uplands, suffered as a result of being on the losing side of that tragic event. It is nonetheless, and interesting chapter in Scots-Irish history. In Oklahoma today the Scots-Irish and Indians celebrate and remember their brave ancestors that participated in the war.
