They exchanged many things, such as physical items and information, and cultural exchanges. These exchanges were everywhere, and there is no specific event or person involved. These contributions include the areas of agriculture, food, language, and also government. In the areas of agriculture, the Natives being skilled farmers, have taught valuable farming techniques to the early newcomers on many crops. A famous storytold technique is of when the Native Americans taught the first American settlers to place a dead fish in a planting hole to fertilize a growing crops.
Nomadic Indians moved from places to places nomadic family’s would build a house that would move very easily that could withstand any type of weather. The Wichita Indians lived in deep river valleys instead of say wichita they call themselves the Kitakits which means tattooed eyelids it one of their traditions. The men tattooed lines on their eyelids and women tattooed their chins. They used corn to make porridge one of their foods. Their homes were domed shaped the used the grass thatch and carefully woven around framework of poles they had to keep their home
Economics (Resources, production, needs, transportation, division of labor, technology, type of economy) With their hard working, the Aztec made a new system of doing their crops. It was called the chinampas. Chinampas is when they used small, rectangular as their way of fertile land. Social Order (customs, education, family life, class and caste, leisure activities, decision-making, gender roles) All the classes had limited women’s roles. The pyramid went from nobles, artisans, commoners and slaves.
Although there were some similar farming techniques between the two civilizations, there were many more differences. The Mayans had to deal with extremely wet plains and rough mountains. They built terraces, raised beds, and canals to irrigate water and make use of all the farming space possible. Meanwhile in Egypt, they also built canals to irrigate water from nearby rivers. However, they farmed on dry plains which meant there was no need for farmers to build good farm land.
The Mesoamerican Indians were able to identify how to correctly grow crops, such as corn, in Mesoamerica. This gave them an advantage in survival being that they did not have to travel for food. Instead, they could give up their nomadic lifestyle and settle down in one distinct place. With all of this contemporary information, the Europeans knew how to make do in
The tribes of the Southeast built their houses out of mud and other resources that were available at that time. The Southeast has fertile coastal plains, river valleys, mountains, and swamps. I think that it rains one part of the year to create a flood providing the rich soil for the crops to grow. Just like the other Native American religions the Southeast’s tribe’s religions were Animism and
The picture that depicts homes in the cliffs were built by the Anasazi who lived in the Southwest (Four Corners) culture region and the long houses were built by the Iroquois who lived in the Great Lakes (New York) culture region. The Anasazi modified their environment by irrigating the desert, building roads, and by building homes into the cliff because they needed to be able to farm in the dry desert, travel and trade, and also be able to defend themselves from their warlike neighbors. The Iroquois, however, modified their environment by clearing land to farm and building the long houses as they did not have to defend against as many attacks. These two different people chose to modify their environments differently because not only were
The Aztecs were a world class society, located in what is now present day Mexico City according to Document A, and in the time period of 1100 CE according to the background essay. Two things the Aztec were well known for were agriculture and human sacriﬁce. However, historians should emphasize the role of agriculture in the Aztec civilization. Historians should emphasize Aztec agriculture because of how complex it made the Aztec. According to Document D, the Aztec built artiﬁcial islands to farm crops on.
They thank Re or the sun god for being light to the land and providing the cattle with energy to survive. Keb or the earth god was the good who was over the corn god. Ptah, created all the tool that the Egyptians, but he or she had to have help from the Nile. When the Nile flood the land it 's destroy everything in its path. The Egyptian also had to rebuild their home after the flood destroyed them.
Ancient China, bound by the Himalayan Mountains, the Gobi Desert, the Pacific Ocean, and the steppes to the north, was geographically isolated from other agricultural regions on the continent. The Yellow River Valley is often referred to as the Cradle of Chinese Civilization, however Chinese culture also developed in the Yangtze River and Huia River Valleys. The only real agricultural area, the North China Plain, accounted for just 12% of the country. They domesticated animals, established farming; growing millet, wheat, other grains, as well as soybeans and cabbage. They also fashioned weapons.
I believe that in Egypt a complex society emerged because of the location they chose to inhabit. The Egyptians had a more productive and protected area of land. The Nile River was predictable and made it easier to grow crops (Wallech, 2013, p. 54). In addition, the Egyptians had only one of four frontiers susceptible to invasion (p. 54). Therefore, they were able to focus on growing crops and development as a civilization.
They relied on it for irrigation purposes in order for their crops to grow, as well as having a significant cultural tie to the Gila and Salt River. However, when the white settlers came and put down roots near their land, the water that was so ingrained in their society all but dried completely. Not until as recently as 2004 did the Pima gain
