EnergyBob is correct. There is a lot of misinformation widely shared on this matter. Big Warrior and Menawa were two different people. Menawa executed McIntosh and fought for the Red Sticks at Horsheshoe Bend. Big Warrior was Chief of Tvkvpvtce Tribal Town and the upper Creeks during the Red Stick rebellion. Likewise, Big Warrior is often identified as being George Cornell, brother to OpothleYahola. They were two different people.
