Cumberland River Compact conserves the Cumberland River from Harlan County Kentucky to Smithland Kentucky at the Ohio river. The Cumberland River was called Wasioto by Native Americans and Riviere des Chaouanons, or "river of the Shawnee," by French traders. The river was also known as the Shawnee River (or Shawanoe River) for years.
