Paleo-Indians, also known as the first Americans, created the ways of the Native American lifestyle. Evidence shows that the Paleo-Indians explored diverse hunting lands in large groups consisting of fifteen to fifty people. The Paleo-Indians used the system of hunting and gathering for their food. The men explored the hunting land for food, and the women cooked and took care of the children. Paleo-Indians also learned to trade ideas and goods with different groups that they encountered when they navigated to the quarries.
For instance, farming took place in the Aztecs and Incas environment, “the Inca were farmers, growing potatoes as well as other crops, often in terraces cut into the high mountainsides.” Patel (4). They also raised sheep and used their meat for hunger and its wool for cloth. Due to the Aztecs living on a swamp, they adapted by making a floating garden called a Chinampa to help produce maise and grow other crops. Maldonado (3). It was very genius for Aztecs as well as Incas to have generated an agricultural structure.
The Nile River shaped Ancient Egypt’s society by creating a suitable environment for farming, providing a mode of transportation, and playing a key role in religion. First of all, the Nile River was invaluable for growing crops. In the middle of the desert, the Nile River flowed directly through Egypt, making the land fertile for farming. Every year, the river would flood the plains and fill irrigation ditches with water for crops. In fact, the Egyptian calendar was based off of the river’s flood cycle.
Furthermore, similarities between the raised gardening fields in the Andean high plains, called “Altiplanos” and the Olmec´s “distinctive technique for intensifying agricultural output” (McNeill and McNeill 110)have been discovered, which may demonstrate the influence and spread of the Olmec´s intensive wetland agricultural practices. Fundamental grain plants domesticated and cultivated by the Olmec, were maize crops. Different types of such crops and its surplus production enabled a trade network within Mesoamerica, spreading all over the American continent. In addition
Most Egyptians live along the banks of the Nile River, so that they will have access to the water they need. The uses of this water are for water sources, transportation, and irrigation for farming. The water creates soil that is great for farming. In Egypt, the Nile River creates a green valley across the desert that is good for farming. People do not want to live in a hot and dry desert that have little water sources.
Agriculture was another economic sector that benefited from the Columbian Exchange ,as the influx of newly discovered agricultural items flooded the marketplace,leaving farmers very wealthy.

Thankfully for the Nile’s overflow each year, silt was brought. The Main reason why silt was important to the Egyptians was that silt builds up and forms a delta. The delta created more land for the Egyptians to expand. The other main reason why silt was important to the Egyptians is because silt made the land fertile. farmers were able to cultivate and farm on fertile land.
But how did the Nile shape Ancient Egypt? The Nile River running 4,160 miles is used for transportation, water, gathering food, and bathing to keep away disease. If the Nile was not present what would happen? The Nile River formed Ancient Egypt because the Egyptians believed in it and used the water to developed crops. More and more people coming in made it a bigger population.
At the start of the 17th century, the first English people to settle in colonial America expected to establish a trade factory with the native peoples as previously done in Sierra Leone, Morocco and India. They expected to trade precious metals, fruits and anything else that could be traded. However, what they embarked upon was extremely rich soil that hinted off the abundance of agricultural wealth just waiting to be exploited. Nevertheless, this agricultural wealth also came with the requirement of an intensive work force. The work force that was supplied firstly with Indentured servants over the Native Americans, which later became the main instrument as to why the African slaves were used a few decades later.
Louis Railroad Company, completed a line running east and west in 1906, crossing the Milwaukee Railroad two miles south of their watering station, which probably caused the relocation of the town.14 At the intersection of two rail lines, Bradley became a major shipping center for South Dakota grain. Trains hauled the bounty of the fall harvest to market, usually wheat to the mills in Minneapolis; manufactured goods and other merchandise into Bradley; and carried travelers to and from town in relative comfort. During the 1930s, in addition to freight trains, two passenger trains ran daily on the Milwaukee Railroad line. Furthermore, on the “Louie,” as residents affectionately called the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad, steam locomotives pulled at least two freight trains and three passenger trains through town every

But when they got their own land, they really became “farmers” this time. In the other way, this policy directly increased the average earnings for every farmer. (Sowards)Also, this policy made farmers felt more confidence for their future life since they have their own land, they don’t need to worried about lost job based on how much they plant, instead, they can concentrate on how to plant crops more productive. Another policy made by the government that helped the progress on American farmers ' individual opportunity on land distribution was the Dawes Act in 1887.
