How do they live? Most Indians live in settled villages by the rivers, and grow vegetables and fruits like manioc, corn, beans and bananas. They also hunt and fish, using plant-based poisons to stun the fish. Some tribes use shotguns for hunting, others use bows and arrows, spears, or blowguns with darts tipped with curare.

During the 1920’s Canada’s economy prospered, since many countries recovering from the horrors and especially damages of the war, required Canadian products. Canada’s abundance in resources such as pulp, forestry, wheat and mining greatly contributed to Europe’s recovery as well as the Canadian economy. Throughout this decade, many products and resources became more available such as cars due to mass production techniques developed to meet the product demand.

Timber, flour, hydroelectricity had become an economic promise of St. Anthony Falls. By the middle of 1800s, as the Europeans recognized the valuable power of the Falls, several mills and barracks were built along the river. Lumbermen and millers began looking to the falls as the resources of hydropower for saw mills and flour mills; making Minneapolis the first in the nation in flour production and third in lumber. () By 1839, the Falls’ energy was fully employed for timber, as this upper river area provided seventy percent of Minnesota’s conifers and
I have lived in Michigan for my whole life. The state of Michigan itself is a very unique place, but even more unique is the upper peninsula of Michigan. The UP is barely more than three percent of the population of Michigan. We 're known as Yoopers, many people think of us as rednecks that sit around and hunt all day. Though the opening days of hunting season means most of the teachers are gone for hunting, there is a lot more to the UP than hunting.
