Next we have Leif Erickson, he is the son of Erik the Red. He started a colony on Newfoundland, 1000 A.D. That is how Canada maintained a diverse cultural
The indigenous peoples of the Americas are the descendants of the pre-Columbian inhabitants of the Americas. Pueblos indígenas (indigenous peoples) is a common term in Spanish-speaking countries. Aborigen (aboriginal/native) is used in Argentina, whereas "Amerindian" is used in Quebec, The Guianas, and the English-speaking Caribbean. Indigenous peoples are commonly known in Canada as Aboriginal peoples, which include First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. Indigenous peoples of the United States are commonly known as Native Americans or American Indians, and Alaska Natives.
There have been a wide variety of beliefs about where the first settlers of North America came from (Shultz, Mays, & Winfree, 2010). Shultz, himself, is quoted as admitting that “We will probably never know when the first people stepped foot on what we now call the United States”. With that being said, it is widely believed, at this time, that the paleo-Indians were the first people to settle what we now call North America. Early evidence suggested that these people came south out of what is now known of as Alaska around twelve thousand years ago, in an effort to find viable food sources; however, recent carbon dating suggests otherwise. The new theory is that the early settlers might have arrived in North America via boat from either Asia or even Europe as many as fifteen thousand years ago.
When the ice sheets opened up in Canada sometime around the late Pleistocene, humans began flooding in, ushering in the human era of modern day United States. This paper’s main focus is on the pre-history of Memphis, Tennessee, mainly the people and the culture that they create or bring with them. Due to little being known to distinguish the area the size of a modern city from the rest of the pre-historical world, much of the focus of the very early history is on the Middle Mississippi Valley, including the very earliest Paleo-Indians and the slightly later Dalton peoples. Once people become more complex and large populations start to gather in smaller regions, it is possible to distinguish specific groups within a region. The Chucalissians
1. Paleo-Indians 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.
The Inuit, Haida, and Iroquois have many things alike and things that they all do differently. The Inuit, Haida, and Iroquois were all in Canada before the europeans came in the 1500’s. All three tribes use specific parts of the animal that they hunted for different things, like using
Federalism Federalism is a system of government that creates one central government, like the US government and there are regional governments, like the 50 smaller state governments. The history for federalism can be hard to explain. In the history of the United States, the people who supported to sign the Constitution are called federalists. “Federalism dates back to approximately 1200-1400 A.D.,” when Native American nations created the Iroquois confederacy. (Miskelly and Noce., p112).
According to Encyclopedia.com, “The Hurons, Iroquois, Susquehannocks, Petuns, Neutrals, Montagnais, and others maintained extensive trade networks over which they exchanged surplus items—largely corn, dried fish, or furs—either with each other for necessities or with more-distant tribes for luxury goods such as tobacco and prized religious items such as sea shells.” Archaeological evidence suggests that the Natives used trade networks as early as 2,000 B.C. The earliest trades were with Native Americans living in the Northeastern area of the United States. They would trade copper artifacts, which were found near New York and Ontario. The Native American tribes continued to trade with one another all the way up to 1492. When Columbus arrived with his crew, America shortly started to consume European influence.
Trent University, and the surrounding area of Peterborough, Ontario, is home to a very diverse cultural heritage. Located 25 km outside of Peterborough is the Village of Omemee, home to 1100. This is my hometown and homeland. Omemee is settled on a intersection where the Pigeon River meets the Trans-Canada Highway, originally making expansion and transportation, easy via road or waterway. The communities first name was decided from our towns decommissioned paper mill owner, William Cottingham and inherently named the village Williamstown.
Nez Percé is an exonym given by French Canadian fur traders who visited the area regularly in the late 18th century, meaning literally "pierced nose". Today the Nez Perce identify most often as Niimíipu in Sahaptin. The tribe also uses the term Nez Perce, as do the United States Government in its official dealings with them, and contemporary historians. Older historical ethnological works use the French spelling of Nez Percé with the
