Jarvis has been doing a first person interpretation of the Kaskaskia warrior Ninchwi Nanaimata from the French and Indian War time period for many years.  Tim began studying the Algonquian speaking Illinois Confederacy more than fifteen years ago and conducts his Eastern Woodland Indian portrayal based off of his research.
