Creation stories are representative accounts of how the world and its populations came about. These stories first developed in verbalized tradition in different tribe, cultures and societies. According to my understanding about the story I read in the book about the creation in Boshongo a Bantu tribe, is an example of myth story of creation. Boshongo story shows that, there were nothing in the beginning. The man Bumba and water were the only creatures living on the land. Bumba plays a good role as the creator of all other living things. He just uses to retched and strained in pain then vomit up the sun. According to my understanding based on this story is that, most of the African creation stories derive from myths. There is no proved showed
Sacagawea, with her infant son, became the only woman in the small band of about 40 or so men. As they approached more and more west, many Natives had never seen white men before and were ready to protect their land. Lewis was sure the presence of a young woman and a baby would be an obvious sign their purpose was peaceful (Armstrong 65). Over the course of the journey, Sacagawea identifyed many edible berries and roots, which were used as medicine as well. Also, she mented clothes and nursed the sick and injured (Moulton 7).
The Timbisha are a Native American tribe that is federally recognized as the Death Valley Timbisha Shoshone Band of California. Located in Death Valley National Park, which neighbors the California−Nevada border, their headquarters are centered in Furnace Creek. Pauline Esteves, Maddy Esteves, and Joe Kennedy are the most prominent members of the tribe. In 2004, Joe Kennedy was elected tribal chairman and is currently a spokesperson for the tribe. Pauline Esteves, tribal elder and chairperson, is a negotiator and an internationally recognized activist who wants to pass on tribal traditions to the younger generations so that the Timbisha traditions, language, and culture does not die out (Jarvis). Maddy Esteves, Pauline’s
No other American woman in history has had more statues made in her honor than Sacagawea and for good cause. She was both a vital and crucial part of Lewis and Clark’s expedition. Her help allowed Lewis and Clark to successfully navigate through the west. Even though many people today just see her as a ‘guide’, she was much more than that. Despite going through the separation from her tribe, being sold as a child, sickness, and having to raise a son, she still made huge contributions to Lewis and Clark’s expedition. Her bravery, knowledge of the land, and skills as an interpreter all contributed greatly to the success of the expedition. Without her help, who knows if Lewis and Clark would have ever completed their
Women in colonial America played revolutionary roles. They played roles that were always changing. “All men are created equal.” It’s the basis in which America was built, but what about the women? Without women, men wouldn’t have been nearly as successful. But what exactly did women do? Well, different races had different roles to play within their population(WiseGEEK).

In addition, throughout their exploration, the Corps passed through many foreign Indian territories. To ensure their safety, they participated in council meetings held by the Indian chiefs of the tribes. Sacagawea was valued as an interpreter when the Indian chiefs spoke Shoshone. One specific example of this was on April 28, 1806 on the return trip. The Corps encountered the Walla Walla Indians near the confluence of the Columbia and Walla Walla Rivers whom they had a hard time communicating with. Sacagawea found a Shoshone captive in their tribe, and used her to translate and communicate with the Native Americans. Their ability to communicate among this encounter and others enabled the Corps to perform their diplomatic mission. Most importantly,
Sacagawea was a great woman. She was the interpreter for the Shoshone tribe. The expedition needed her to translate what the Native American was saying, in order for the men to buy horses. Also, Sacagawea knew all the landmarks around the Rocky Mountains. Another fact is that she knew the land and how to survive.
Period Sacagawea once said, “ Amazing the things you find when you bother to search for them.” Sacagawea is one of the most well known American Indians. She overcame many obstacles to become the woman we learn about today. She is a leader, caregiver, mother, and many more things. Through her struggles Sacagawea still left her mark on the world, with many achievements, and interesting life facts.
Believe it or not slavery was a problem even for Indians. Many Indians were captured and sold into slavery, Indians such as Sacagawea who was born in 1788 (Timeline). Unfortunately, Sacagawea was captured at a young age and was forced into slavery. We know her as the young, brave woman who traveled with Lewis and Clark on their expedition to the West. She is also recognized on the one dollar coin for her amazing adventure with the discoverers (Hoose 130). There is much to be known about this extraordinary women. The way she was taken from her family and put into slavery is a major part of her life, as well as her adventure with Lewis and Clark, what happened after she returned home and the legacy she left behind.
(Perkins) Without history, a country cannot be created. Sacagawea not only impacted the lives of Lewis and Clark, but also the life of her husband and her children. With her intelligence and bravery, she influenced many people in her life. Many American women have influenced

Pocahontas was the favorite daughter of the Powhatan Chief. She was born in 1596 with the name “Amonute”. Wahunsenakah, Pocahontas’s father, was the most powerful Indian chief in Virginia. In 1607, Pocahontas was about eleven, englishmen arrived in the town, jamestown. Later that year she was kidnapped from a village on the Potomac River and held in captivity for a year. She was later released when the Powhatan chief threatened to destroy the village of Pocahontas’s captures.

But when she was later kidnapped for a ransom, kocoum decided that it was not
