The Paiutes are a Native American Indian tribe “made up of several bands throughout the western part of the United States, also known as the Great Basin region” (Ruby 222). The Northern Paiutes populated areas of Oregon, California, Nevada, and Idaho; and inquiries as to how the environment might have affected their interactions, migration, and social behavior is a topic of great interest in Oregon archeology. The Northern Paiutes “who practiced the ancestral lifeway well into the 19th century, were heirs to an extremely ancient cultural tradition” (Aikens 13). Historical archeological studies found that these groups often “made tools, gathered plants, and hunted animals of similar if not identical kinds” (Aikens 13). Through these similar identities,
Shannon, Thank you for bringing awareness to the value of resourcefulness librarian’s and experts provided. Technology is complex. Thankfully, Marian’s librarians are not only present in Fond Du Lac, but extend support services through the phone as well as email. I have formally, taken advantage in prior research guidance with high quality research journals from external databases that I had never known prior. The librarian provided a wide range of extended resources, personal knowledge with database searches, and printed journal sources (not available online), but mailed to me personally within 2 days was unbelievable. I completely agree with, Liberians are able to save time that is extremely valuable to all of us, nor should a librarian
When the Sioux migrated to the Great Plains area, they most certainly came across the the Badlands in their discovery. The name “Badlands” is derived from the Lakota phrase makȟóšiča, meaning Land of Bad Spirits. Today, some Lakota believe that the Badlands are a place to be avoided because it is where bad spirits exist. This paper will discuss the geographic location, geological formation, Lakota legends, reasons the site is visited, time or seasons to visit and Lakota stargazing associated with the site. When applicable, Lakota words will be provided.
Native Americans: Environmental Adaptations In the early history of the United States, even before Europeans set foot in North America, there were Native Americans all across the continent. Native Americans lived in tribes and were nomadic. Although they were nomadic, they would also inhabit “permanent villages” where they would live year-round. On the occasion that those “permanent villages” were abandoned, left behind would be artifacts from their culture that explained a great amount about their lifestyle and traditions. These popular artifacts were most commonly found in southwest and northeast regions such as the Great Plains, the Great Basin, and the Mississippi River Valley.
Hello Branden, the Shawnee Indians are always fun to read about because of their part in the French and Indian war and also in the Revolutionary war. The Shawnee Indians seemed like they were more self reliant than some of the other tribes I have read about. I live in
New High School for Summit City project is thoroughly communicated to all members involved and is located in the north section of Summit City, Ontario. The owner of this project is Prince Edward Regional Board of Education. Summit City has two public high schools and the Board of Education applied for ministry approval for the construction of a new education facility, with a total of $19,000,000. The existing schools would have to be teared down, costing them a total of $2,600,000, so that one site can be sold to build a condominium and the other site can be used to the board of educational regional office. I am appointed to give the owner, Prince Edward Regional Board of Education, an idea of which is the best project delivery methods for this kind of case scenario. The three methods of project delivery are:
a. The City of Lapeer does not have a historic preservation plan; however the City recognizes the importance of preserving our history and encourages historic preservation and historically accurate designs in new projects. Within the City’s Master Plan, a key goal is to promote business development that is compatible with the character of Lapeer, recognizing the historical importance and architectural appeal of its buildings.
My parents are the epitome of the classic tourist archetype, and forced my siblings and I on many a road trip in our green minivan at least twice a year during my childhood. I have spent time in forty five of the fifty states, experiencing museums and tourist traps galore, but one of my favorite sites to see as a child was the Crazy Horse monument in the side of South Dakota’s Black Hills. The face of a Native American chief, memorialized in mountainside, is incomplete, but taking shape to pay homage ____. The overwhelming fascination and curiosity with Native American culture has caused a rift between the Native American community and the archaeological community; the paths of tribes and scientists have converged messily in the past century as sacred burial grounds have been transformed into excavation sites. This convergence caused the passing of the Native American Graves and
The project was reviewed and accepted by the Institutional Review Board (IRB), to work with human subjects. Additionally, this project was reviewed and accepted by the Eastern Shawnee of Oklahoma Tribal Administration and the National Historic Landmarks Program of the National Park Service allowing this project to work in accordance with Section 106 of the archaeology guidelines.
First explored in 1938, the Head-Smashed-In Buffalo-Jump site in south-west Alberta, Canada is an archaeological goldmine. Named after a child who was watching the event unfold that was hit with a falling buffalo, HSIBJ site tells a gruesome story. As one of the oldest and most preserved kill sites in the world, HSIBJ is scientifically and anthropologically significant. For six thousand years, this site was used by “Plains People” as a hunting ground, herding multiple buffalo off of a cliff to their deaths, as a means of survival. The magnitude of the HSIBJ site helps shed light on the hunting patterns of other groups that are still in the area today.
The Little Bison Basin PROBLEM 8 ,t .. ~ The Little Bison River flows from small glaciers in the high cirques of the Rocky Mountains east to the Great Plains of North America, where it ultimately joins the Missouri system. The valley through the Rockies contains a few small towns which are supported by the ski industry and tourism. Recently, extensive natural gas deposits have been discovered in the area, and salvage archaeology projects have been funded to assess the nature of archaeological resources prior to the construction of pipelines, access roads, and well heads. You have been asked to summarize the prehistory of the area for a book on the local history of the resort town of Poplar, soon to celebrate its centennial.

In my life I have spent a great deal of time in northern Minnesota. That is the home of most of my family. There was a time that I lived up there, but due to constant changes in the world of lumber and saw mills, I have had to move. Every trip up back to the place I called home, we would see a large hill. It was a ski area. This place was a symbol for how close we were until I got to see my family. Under more scrutiny, I have discovered that it more than just a ski hill. This hill is called Spirit Mountain. This large hill contain multiple burial sites, and was used by the Indigenous group, the Anashaanabe.
In this thesis, I discuss my research and fieldwork at Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park (KLGO) in southeast Alaska. The conducted research examines fragile archaeological sites in unstable landscapes and articulates climatic and environmental conditions associated to cultural resources. My research includes identifying unknown sites, protecting known sites in unstable landscapes, identifying environmental factors threatening to alter or destroy archaeological resources, and examining human – environmental relationships.
