The Iroquois are a group of native americans. The Iroquois are divided into 5 dans. The Mohawk, Seneca, Oneida, Onondaga, and Cayuga tribes. Later a sixth nation, the Tuscarora tribe, joined the confederation. Agriculture provided most of the Iroquois diet.
Iroquois Confederacy was an association of five tribes named Mohawk, Oneida, Onandaga, Cayuga, Seneca. The conference was characterized by a peaceful pact between the tribes. In 1700, the Tuscarora tribe joined to the confederacy making the Six Nations Iroquois. Each tribe was compound by two moieties, and each moiety was compound by one or more exogamous clans. The Iroquois Confederacy had a huge importance in America History because they were the immense native American political group that fought with French and England settlement of the America.
Cherokee & Yokut from the Beginning Native American tribes all have their own unique views of just how the world and civilization came to be. While some share similarities in their stories, others have a very different story to tell of how this world came to be. The Cherokee and Yokyut tribes are no different in that they have great resemblance, yet the tales are told through different contexts. The Cherokee tell of a world full of cold, vast and endless darkness (the great stone arch of the sky) where tiny creatures live within an area of the sky. Here the water beetle leapt off and discovered the water below, but the only ground was below the water.
Two Enemies One Story This paper will identify differences and similarities within the Apache and Cherokee Tribes of North America through their Creation Stories. Creation Stories often share similarities throughout the world. Creation stories are frequently considered sacrosanct explanations which are found in almost all Native American tribes except a select few in South America. These stories all have a scheme of figures who are often divine beings with human features or human like, or a combination of animalistic features and human, who play main roles with in the creation story. Creation Stories help answer question that cannot be answered by general knowledge and are told in a story format.
The Dutch gave an influential tide to both the Natives and the French colonists because they created Fort Orange along the Hudson River, the Dutch saw the French as enemy`s, because they had better supplies like weapons and tools to gain better alliances and trading partners. The French and Iroquois who knew that they would lose their Dutch suppliers to the northern tribes who had better fur pelts. Hoping that with war the Dutch and northern tribes would remain separated, the French and Iroquois decided not to make
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
Before Europeans even knew of the Americas there were Indians. The Indians had diverse cultures and conflicts with each other. There were hundreds of different groups of Indians. Most hated each other and killed each other. Some sought to get beyond murder and cannibalism.
In the early year 1606, explorers and their advocate focused on finding a Northwest Passage from Europe to East Asia. the Americas in the Atlantic Ocean were often charged with finding routes for water, though it was well known that there was an important landmass. This took place at the dawn of the seventeenth century in Europe, at that time the early 1600s came to an end. while other attempts at settlement, two of the primary goals were to find gold and a water route to Asia. The English monarch King James I granted a charter to Virginia Company to build a settlement in the Chesapeake Bay area of North America.
Imagine yourself going back into the past and living with the Coastal and Plateau tribes. Wouldn't you want to see the resources they used? They have to use the sources that are found around them based on where they live. So the Chinook tribe of the coast and Nez Perce tribe of the Plateau interacted with their environment differently and similarly to provide food, shelter and clothing for their people. There is many differences and similarities between the Coastal tribe, Chinook and the Plateau tribe, Nez Perce on the way they get and use their food based on their environment.
The relationship between the Cherokee and the United States has changed over time. When America was first founded, the Americans wanted the Cherokee's land. The Cherokees were forced to leave by the U.S. Army. My evidence from Readworks.org is " In the 1830s, in a famous event know as the Trail of Tears, the United States Army forced the Cherokee to march to Oklahoma." This shows that Cherokee were forced to move.
Native American Costumes Normally when people stereotype Native Americans, they don’t even mean to. For example, kids and/or adults can dress up as a Native American for Halloween. That might be all fun and games for some people, but it could be extremely offensive to an actual Native American. Just imagine yourself walking through a friendly neighborhood on a cool, eerie Halloween night, and you happen to be of Native American descent.
