I have also been hunted like Rainsford just not on that serious of a note. My example of hunting is when I hunt animals around the State of Wyoming. I have hunted quite a bit of animals, I have hunted deer, antelope, elk, and a lot of small game. I have been hunted by things as well. I have been hunted by people while playing games I have also been hunted by animals while I was hunting.
In the essay “Why the Beaver Should Thank the Wolf” by Mary Ellen Hannibal, readers get to realize just how unjustified this unbalance is. A major point within “Why the Beaver Should Thank the Wolf” is that the predators are not always the big problem, but instead a big help, and that they are withering down to a non-existent state. The animal that Hannibal uses as an example is the wolf in Wyoming. I believe whole heartedly with Hannibal in saying that if it was not for the wolves, many ecosystems and the prey would not thrive as much as they do.
Due to the fact that only Native Americans were in the Oregon Territory, and they used animal products efficiently and did not hunt unless it was necessary, the animal population was very high. The main animal hunted by trappers were beavers. Their fur had become a commodity due to the near extinction of the creature from over hunting. “The possibility of profiting from the western beaver trade had led,”(McNeese OL) many to the territory in search of wealth and fame. The land around the Oregon Trail was also important and profitable because it could and was used for farmers to plant and harvest corn, wheat, and other vegetables.
They often hunted and used materials from nature for food and clothing. For example, the Chickasaw often hunted deer. They used the meat of the deer for food, and the deerskin to make clothing. The tips of the antlers were used to arrow heads. They also used the sinew and twisted them to make the bow strings.
The Sioux Indians were a powerful tribe with a rich history. The sioux we nomadic which meant they moved from place to another.They followed the pattern of buffalo which assured them there will be enough food and clothing. The Sioux tribe were well known for their hunting and warrior culture. War was a very important part of the Plains Indian culture which led to inter-tribal conflicts . The Siouan men wore face paint for religious ceremonies and, war paint in times of war.
The fish that they caught most often was the salmon. The salmon was a very important food source for the Chinook, and it plays a large role in the Chinook sense of identity. Let’s compare the Chinook to a group of Native Americans on the opposite coast: the Penobscot people in Maine. The Penobscot also derived meaning from the animals they hunted, although the animals were different. The Penobscot hunted beavers, otters, moose, bears, and caribou.
The Dhole usually have five to twelve members of their pack, and these eight pack members have to patrol thirty four square miles and their calls help with that a lot. This pack is made up of the mother of the litter and her eight pups. They keep a very good watch on their perimeter and other animals don’t like messing with them because the dominance that they show. Sometimes they will combine with another pack to form a super pack to hunt big game animals and after the hunt is over the two packs split ways again. Each one of the dogs have a distinct call that it is very easy to identify each one of the animals.
Sort of like a vice president. Kyen: The Miwok Native Americans hunted deer as their main source of food, but also hunted, grizzlies and black bears. They ate small animals such as rabbits, beavers, squirrels and woodrats. They fished for trout in the rivers and streams in the Valley for food, too. They cooked all these dead animals above an open fire or a stone oven that was heated by hot rocks.
Lastly, the Iroquois and the Okanogan tribes both value sharing and generosity. At the beginning of the creation myth, “The World on a Turtle’s Back”, it is shown that generosity and being helpful are important aspects when “The birds of the sea saw the woman falling, and they immediately consulted with each other as to what they could do to help her.” This shows that sharing and generosity are important to the Iroquois: all the animals worked together to help the woman. In “Coyote and the Buffalo”, it is said that "Coyote had to return to his own country without a Buffalo. That is why there never have been any buffalo along the Swah-Netk'-qhu." This shows that generosity is important by saying Coyote's foolishness was the ultimate reason why there are no buffalo in the area that
They are originally from North America and live in places such as rivers, streams and lakes. Bluegill can grow up to around 30 centimeters, but most of them are about 20~25 centimeters (“Bluegill Fish”, N/A). They mainly eat small insects and other small fish. The bluegill eat small animals to sea weeds, and they are strong fishes. Bluegill spread fast because the parents protect their eggs so other fishes can’t eat them.
The Shoshone were nomadic hunter-gatherers who hunted many different animals and gathered many different foods.They had their own way of cooking the animals they caught, the food they gathered, and of building their shelters . The Shoshone wore different clothing depending on weather and the season to protect them from the elements. Different parts of the tribe hunted different animals and gathered different foods. They even lived different lifestyles. The main factor deciding what they hunted and how they lived was their location.
