The Chumash lived along the southern part of California’s warm coastal region. Chumash Indians lived in dome- shaped houses, called aps. Some of the houses could fit up to 70 people. The house was made out of bent willow branches and surf grass. The doorway was covered with a mat of weeds. A fire was usually built in the center of the ap to keep it warm. The ap, therefore, had an opening in the roof to allow smoke from cooking to come out. Each Chumash village usually had houses, a sweat lodge, buildings for storing food, and an area for ceremonies.
The Choctaw Indians were an important tribe, and the largest of the Muskogean tribes. The Choctaws have two stories about their origins in their traditional homeland in central Mississippi. One is that their ancestors came from west of the Mississippi River and settled in what is now the homeland. The other is that the tribe is descended from ancestors who were formed by a spirit from the damp earth of Nanih Waiyah, a large mound in northeastern Mississippi. Either way, the Choctaws resided in places, holding most of Southern Alabama and Mississippi with adjoining parts of Louisiana.
The Mandan tribe originated in North Dakota. The tribe was very intelligent and hard working people. Many roles varied depending on their age and/or gender such as clothing, hunting, and gathering.

When I visited the Koorie Heritage Trust, I found their large collection of 2600 artifacts most intriguing because the Trust had been collecting these artifacts ever since the year 1985. The collection consists of various items across time, the oldest being stone tools such as grinding stones and axes, and newer items were also there such as t-shirts and jewelry. Furthermore, my favorite item in the collection was the eel trap, which was an example of the survival of the Koori culture as well as their knowledge. Gunditjmara elder, Aunty Connie Hart, made the trap in 1988. The Gunditjmara being an Indigenous group from Western Victoria, where Gunditj means ‘belonging to’ and mara means ‘person’. And the major role of the collection is to show

The Mandan are an indigenous tribe native to North America. The Mandan’s are known for being one of the earliest tribes to live on the great plains of the Midwest. Unlike other plains Indians the Mandan were a settled tribe who lived along the Big Bend of the Missouri River in what is now called North Dakota.

Do peace, unity, and equality still exist this day in time among groups of people? Are we influenced by our environment to associate our way of seeing things and create language based on that fact?

Based on the linguistic data of the recently discovered tribe, we can draw conclusions about the tribe’s climate and terrain, diet, views on family and children, system of government and attitude towards war. This data shows that the lost tribe was an isolated group that lived in a valley, coexisted in unison, valued life, had high regards for
