Chickasaws The Chickasaw Tribe was named after a Chickasaw Leader named Chikasha. The story is that two brothers Chata and Chickasha who were leaders and they split in different directions and the people that followed them was given the tribal name of Choctaw and Chickasaw. Our ancestors came from Alabama, Kentucky,
Cherokee Indians Alicia Stephens AIU Abstract In this paper I will discuss the history of the Cherokee Indians in the United States. First by describing the tribes pre-Columbian history to include the settlement dates and known cultural details. Then a brief description of the cultural and religious beliefs of the tribe will be given, as well as the tribe’s history after contact with settlers. Finally discussing John Ross, who he was and how he affected the Cherokee Indians.
As suggested earlier, small bodies of water that may have been present provided the tribe a source of drinking water. Since they have terms for cow, pig, calf, and sheep but no terms for beef, pork, veal, leather, or mutton, it is most likely that the tribe did not slaughter these animals for food or clothing. The tribe lived among these animals, and one might assume they valued them as living creatures. Based on the focus on grains, one might also assume that they are vegetarians based on the provided data; however, while they did not eat red meat, the possible presence of rivers and lakes suggests the availability of fresh water fish.
The Lenape Indians are the natives of New Jersey and were around well before any of the explorers or our ancestors came to the area. They had a society rich of culture, traditions, beliefs and customs. They are one of the largest Indian tribes on the east coast, containing three primary divisions or clans. Frederick Hodge (1907) worked for the Bureau of American Ethnology and has done extensive research on the topic of Native Americans. Hodge compiled a detailed reference book called The Handbook of American Indians North of Mexico, which gives detailed histories on many of the American Indian tribes. According to Hodge, the Lenape or Delaware Indians were an Indian society based from the Delaware area all the way to southern New York in
Each family had its own lot and some having up to four houses in addition some having two-story structure. Every house had its own purpose to a family for example; one house would hold food storage for winter other houses would be used for entertainment.
The Choctaws had a strong tradition of doing business. They were very intelligent people. The tribe developed a strong economy based
The Narragansett were resourceful and had their own way of governing. “They survived by farming corn, hunting, and fishing,” (The Narragansett Indian Tribe, A Local Legacy). As for governing, the explorer Giovanni de Verrazano “described a large Indian population organized under powerful kings,” (The Narragansett Indian Tribe, A Local Legacy). This large indian population is believed to be the Narragansett.

Arctic (Inuit): Where: They live in the northern areas of North America where it is very cold such as Alaska (the Alaskan coast), and Canada. This cold climate influences their whole way of living. Obtain Food: Due to the harsh weather they were not able to farm or grow any crops. They
the new settlers were wise about their choice to build their houses.they choose to make their home made out of brick so that their house will have a firm foundation and they also used other materials to but the purpose of the sturdy houses was to keep intruders out like
Corn, beans, and squash, feed Native American tribes. Buffalo however, feed those who lived on the plains of Central United states. Meals would differ depending on where they lived. Each Native family had their own resources and would cook different foods. For example, The Powhatan Indians were primarily farmers planting fields that averaged one hundred acres in size. “The Native Americans used natural resources in every aspect of their lives.” (Wells 2). Natives lived near areas that had easy access to food source. Forests were gold mines for resources. Deer, bears, and other animals that were hunted for their meat and furs lived there, while the trees themselves helped produce chestnuts, walnuts, and acorns. “In a way, the environment acted as a huge supermarket, providing local tribes with everything they needed for survival,” exclaimed John Smith
The way I conducted my research was by using the Britannica School, Facts on File, and Abc-clo. On Britannica School I found many interesting things. In North America, the Inuits had already been hunting whales for some time when they were
Beringia's climate was perfect for animals such as mammoth, bison, horse, reindeer, camel, and saiga. As the animals moved east across Beringia, the hunter-gatherers of the time would follow them across the land.
Hunting The Inuit people had to go out and hunt for food; this was the job for the men. In the summer when the ice melted they hunted from boats known as Kayaks. The kayak could move efficiently through the water so the hunter could get close to the prey without being heard. They usually hunted for ringed seals as it was an all -year round mammal so it could be hunted in the winter as well as in the summer. It also provided essential vitamins and minerals which were found in fruits, but as they didn't have fruits in their habitat they had to rely on seals. The Inuit hunter would use a sharp harpoon to stab the seal; he would then drag it up and take it inland. Caribou and whale was also hunted for their skin and certain parts of their bodies which would make good tools for carving in their spare time.
Indigenous People Indigenous people are those that are native to an area. Throughout the world, there are many groups or tribes of people that have been taken over by the Europeans in their early conquests throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, by immigrating groups of individuals, and by greedy corporate businesses trying to take their land. The people indigenous to Australia, Brazil and South America, and Hawaii are currently fighting for their rights as people: the rights to own land, to be free from prejudice, and to have their lands protected from society.
