What was Tecumseh’s main goal in working with the British? to divide the attention of American soldiers to draw the United States into the War of 1812 to ensure access to British imports to protect American Indian lands from white settlement

Answers

Tecumseh’s main goal in working with the British was "to protect American Indian lands from white settlement," since the British seemed like the "lesser of two evils" when it came to Native Rights. 

Tecumseh, a Native American member of the Shawnee tribe, who created an alliance among several Native American tribes, became a leader of the multi-tribal confederacy during the War of 1812.

His main goal was to gain British support to stop American settlers into Native American lands; they needed British forces to stop the Americans. Thus the answer is: "to protect American Indian lands from white settlement".
