The west started to become more popularized by Americans during the nineteenth century. Settlers in New England started to move westward because the soil of New England was not able to produce high amounts of grain. As a result, the farmers would set out to find a new piece of land to grow their crops on. The farmer’s lively hood as well as their families relied on land to produce the resources their family needed to live. However, most of the land settlers began to occupy was already the home to Native Americans.
The characteristics of the modern Northwest Coast tribes that struck me the most was the lifestyle that they live in reservations. There is really no difference between reservations large or small even though some reservations might have more resources then the other there is still vale of darkness over these reservations. The American government had begun to declare specific pieces of land located in the West as Native reservation in the 1850s and 1860s. The main reasons were to open up more land for settlers that were headed to the west and to distinguish and keep peace between these settlers and Indians. Most reservations were large but not big enough didn’t compare to the land that Native were use to.
What differentiated these people from each other at the time was their nomadic tendencies and their ability to adapt to the environment in which they chose to reside(Shultz, Mays, & Winfree, 2010). It was not unheard of for each group to pack up and move every three to six days and travel as far as 200 miles each time. Also, as a result of their traveling lifestyles, they had a wide variety of languages and belief systems. Some learned to make weapons from the indigenous rocks and become hunters, while other chose to grown gardens and live off the land by other means. Each culture had a different way of chipping stones to make tools and weapons.
Native Americans who emigrated from Europe perceived the Indians as a friendly society with whom they dwelt with in harmony. While Native Americans were largely intensive agriculturalists and entrepreneurial in nature, the Indians were hunters and gatherers who earned a livelihood predominantly as nomads. By the 19th century, irrefutable territories i.e. the areas around River Mississippi were under exclusive occupation by the Indians. At the time, different Indian tribes such as the Chickasaws, Creeks, and Cherokees had adapted a sedentary lifestyle and practiced small-scale agriculture.
Cities Both McCook and Houston are similar in that they are both great places to live, but differences also lie in many areas such as the cost of living, traffic, and safe surroundings. People who live in McCook and Houston have similarities because they all work and own homes, but they will immediately notice differences in the cost of living. In McCook, a single person’s salary usually ranges from $30,000 to $40,000 dollars, whereas, in Houston a single person’s salary usually ranges from $50,000 to $60,000. In addition, the cost of housing in McCook is considerably lower than that in Houston. An average house in McCook may cost around $80,000 to $100,000, as compared to Houston, where the average house may cost around $150,000 to $200,000.
Costume: The dress was made with deerskin material along with the boots that were made with animal fur. The apparels during the late 1700’s was hand-made by using skins from the animal herds in their tribe. Because the Shoshone women were gatherers, protected the horses, collected wood to make fire, and arranged the teepees, their status was low and were treated with little respect in the Lemhi-Shoshone society. Sacagawea’s childhood in the Shoshone village near the Lemhi valley contributed mainly to patriarchal society which allowed her to gain special techniques to maintain her own livelihood. Ring- Toussaint Charbonneau, a French-Canadian French trader, claimed Sacagawea as his wife in 1800.
These differences, while at the time, may have seemed small, gave our country two unique economies. And these economies almost split our country in two. The varying economies between the North and South caused tension in the United States, which caused the Civil War and then for North to win. The South’s economy was based on agriculture. This meant the South focused on farms and plantations and had very few factories.
All foraging groups seem to take this form. Bands are widely scattered over relatively large territories, yielding low population densities. Although hunter-gatherers have individual rights to have a personal property but no typical property rights exist for the natural resources that they share. Many intellectuals mainly those who were the advocators of Marxism believed that early man lived in a state of primitive communism. There are some mentioned information about this in Lewis H. Morgan’s Ancient Society, first published in 1877.
In Canada there were many nations before us such as the Inuit,Haida,and the Iroquois,and these are only some of the Native American tribes in Canada.In this article one of the three tribes dried food to keep it fresh for other seasons such as winter because food is hard to grow during that particular season.Can you guess what tribe used this method of storing food?By using facts and statements to explain how these tribes survived in the mixed regions of Canada. The Iroquois,Haida,and Inuit have many differences,but even more similarities. The Haida and Iroquois shelters were very similar because both houses were made of wood planks,however the Haida houses were very cleanly made and an Iroquois home was made as if it had shingles.This is because
A complete shift to this nomadism would have resulted to a need for many horses among each individual family, around six. One would be used for hunting, two for specifically riding, and three for carrying the lodge poles, tipi covers, and other necessities among the tribe. This was difficult for many families to obtain this many horses due to living in poorer conditions but also to a limited number of horses available.2 Even with a limited number of horses, however, the aid that these animals provided for each tribe allowed them to continue striving and develop their ways of living in order to create a more sufficient and advanced way of
The settlers flooded in. The Dakota were being squeezed into smaller areas. Moving from previously prime hunting and fishing grounds to increasing smaller non-productive reservations, harsh winters and low supplies created times that that left many native families hungry and frustrated. Throughout the 1800’s, treaties were negotiated with the Dakota and the U. S. Government and native lands were exchanged for money, farming supplies and debt payments. These treaties were not in favor of the native population.
The Pawnee men and the women were having some difference between their works. The men were the hunters, and when they went on hunting trips, they used buffalo-hide tepees as temporary shelter. Sometimes they went to war to protect their families, too. Then, the women’s main job was to be a farmer. And they did most of the caring and the cooking, too.
Their food came from their crops and gardens. Sometimes droughts in Nebraska made it very difficult to feed their families and still have some left over to sell. Which was difficult because this is how they earned a living. Most pioneers lived in sod houses. These were insulated which was very convenient for Pioneer families during the different seasons.
