There currently are about 9.2 million horses in North America. They are widespread with many breeds and disciplines that each horse fits into. Horses did not always inhabit North America as they do now. Roughly four hundred years ago the horse made it to America through Spanish soldiers, also known as conquistadores. These conquistadores successfully conquered parts of Mexico and South America before traveling north to the southwestern portion of what is now today’s United States in the 1540’s in search of gold and other treasures. As the conquistadores traveled they came in contact with a few different Native American groups. They tried hard to convert these new people to Roman Catholicism, which was the Spanish religion. In the 1680’s the
The central focus of my learning segment is about the two Indians tribes the Algonquin and the Iroquois. The content will be focused on the two tribes, their way of life, where they lived, and their different cultures. The goal of the unit is to teach notetaking skills that will last well into their future. Each lesson will touch on a different aspect of the tribe and will have embedded note taking strategies. Read alouds will be used to model the note taking strategies for the unit.
All stories illustrate the beginning, with value and insight; indigenous knowledge is innately given. In an indigenous worldview, knowledge comes from the creator and from creation itself. The Haudenosaunee people are given principles to explicate for appropriate conduct to all of creation and its beings. The creation story illustrates that all of creation has a responsibility in growth, development, and sustainability; the great law of peace demonstrates how to live a “good mind”; the good message describes how to treat one another; the original instructions depict between the right and wrong doing’s; the symbolism of the wampum belts explicates the history of the Haudenosaunee people. These principles instruct humanity and assigns roles and
Paleo-Indians are described as the initial Americans, those who set forth the preliminaries of Native American culture. They trekked in bands of around fifteen to fifty individuals, around definite hunting terrains, establishing traditional gender roles of hunter-gatherers. It is agreed that such Paleo-Indians began inhabiting America after the final Ice Age, and that by 1300 B.C.E. human communities had expanded to the point of residing in multiple parts of North America. As these early Native Americans spread out, their sites ranged anywhere from northern Canada to Monte Verde, Chile. These groups sought after stability by going after food sources and ways to advance their small societies in this new hemisphere which they were oblivious to having entered. The Paleo-Indians strived in a semi-nomadic lifestyle where reciprocity was practiced.
The way the Caddo and the Comanche tribes adapted to the geography of Texas was very unique. Geography was a big problem since it affected most things in their lives like food, clothing, housing, etc. The Caddo from the Southeastern culture and the Comanche from the Plains culture adapted to the geography and climate of Texas to become the most advanced and powerful tribes of Texas.
The two stories of creation we 're very similar in both Christianity, and the Iroquois. They both had the same outline, but each of them added their own personal twists that made it their own.
There are various similarities between the two works of literature, for example in the Bible in chapter 1 verse 1 of Genesis it states that “in the beginning God created the Heavens and Earth”. And in The Iroquois Creation Story it states “ Among the ancients there were two worlds in existence. The Lower world was in great darkness;- the possession of the great monster; but the upper world was inhabited by mankind”(David Cusick). Now these two sections of writing are abundantly similar. Especially when the bible states that God created the Heavens and the Earth, The Iroquois Creation
Nonetheless, it is evident that they were one of the most peaceful people who were wise, and focused on being in harmony with nature and the world. The Iroquois creation story verifies that the Indians are not uncivilized or savages. Rather, it emphasizes the countless similarities they share with different cultures and how their ideas are not different to that of the rest of the world. The Natives have had a magnanimous impact on shaping Americans into who and what they are. They have taught them many precious lessons as well as values that allowed them to expand and build the vast country that stands erect today. Furthermore, the creation story is very relevant to other cultures. Not only does it show the relevance between Native American culture and beliefs with the rest of the world, but it also shines light on their thoughts and points of view that could be further studied. Finally, there can be similarities found between every nation, no matter how different they may seem on the surface, because all humans share an innate essence with one another, human
Native American myths and the Christian Bible both offer stories about how the world began.. In “The Earth on Turtle’s Back” and Genesis 1, both tales have similar values and ideas. These two stories compare in that both tell the importance of water, the fact that Earth came out of the water, and the existence of supreme beings; in contrast, each story has a unique idea of how the world came into being.
The Native Americans were the original owners of the United States of America. However, due to the population increase in Europe, the European migrated to America in seek of land for farming, settlement, and spread their religion (Desai, n.p). The two communities lived together and interacted with each other. Nevertheless, the Native American also known to as the Red Indians and the Settlers had differences in many aspects of their economy, religion, and culture. In some situation, it is hard to identify their disparities. On the other hand, the dissimilarities are easily identified. Additionally, there are similarities between these two nations. Culture is the outline of human
Each every creation myth is unique in its own way. Of course, creation myths have their similarities, but each of them has at least one detail that separates them from every other myth. The question is how those similarities came about, considering for some of these groups that didn’t even know that each other existed. It would have nearly impossible and extremely unlikely for them to communicate with each other let alone, share their stories with each other. Yet, despite this there are some extremely common themes and events throughout these myths. Three of the most common creation myth motifs are, women bringing in evil and suffering, a bloody struggle or warfare, and an imperfect creator.
In the 1500’s the Comanche tribe was originally merged with the Shoshone tribe in the Upper reaches of the Platte River. Only when the Europeans arrived did they split up. Around 1700 the Comanches acquired horses and started moving south from the Shoshone tribe. They made a stop in the Central plains before continuing on to an area that extended from the Arkansas River to Central Texas. As the tribe migrated south their population began to increase dramatically due to an abundance of food and an influx of Shoshone tribe members. The tribe itself was split into 8-12 independent groups and often fought amongst each other over land rights and food. When the Europeans discovered the Comanches they were settled in present-day Texas, Oklahoma
Native Americans have a really diverse culture and one report is not enough to talk about all of their cultures. They have fourteen tribes so it is obvious that they will have a lot of different cultures and traditions between all fourteen tribes. It is impossible to have fourteen tribes with different people and expect them to all believe in the same things so some of them have different beliefs and different traditions. They worshipped a lot of gods and even some of the gods had dolls made for them. Some tribes worshipped the sun or fire or some serpents. Buckle your seatbelts boys and girls because today the topic is going to be about those three things.
The twins grow up and begin creating their earthly creations. The good mind is driven by good nature. He creates light, rivers, animals, and finally, humans. However, his twin, driven by an evil nature creates rocky-mountains, great steeps, waterfalls, and reptiles that are injurious to mankind. Native Americans are notorious for being savages and brutes. They are often labeled as uncivilized barbarians, which is a solely false accusation against them. This paper aims to address the similarities between Native American beliefs and the beliefs of other cultures based on The Iroquois Creation Story in order to defeat the stereotype that Natives are regularly defined by.
Each tribe or empire of the Americas had their own unique technique or style that made them different. Regardless of their differences, they all were superior in their own ways and they each made a customized mark on history. The following paper will be summarizing things from each tribe or empire. For example, government or religion. There were four tribes/empires that made up the tribes of the Americas. There were the North American tribes, the Aztecs, the Mayas, and the Incas.
