The Columbian exchange as Alfred Crosby, called it, is the exchange of plants, human populations, diseases, and ideas between the incipient world and the old Hemispheres. The idea between the two areas circulated a wide variety of new crops and livestock which supported increase in population in both Hemispheres. It alludes to a time of social and organic trade between the Old world and the New Universes. Trades of plants, creatures, illnesses and innovations changed Europeans and local American’s lifestyle.

Ever since the widespread colonization of the Americas in the 16th century, popular perception of the diverse Native American culture by the ‘civilized’ world has changed dramatically, from one of mutual understanding between tribes and a begrudging respect from the first settlers of the New World, to a modern culture where finding a ceremonial headdress in a halloween store is not so rare an occurrence. Prior to this, Native American culture flourished across the American continent. Though it 's undeniable that the occasional war over resources or tribal honor bloodied the timeline of history, in most regions of what would become North America, peaceful interaction and a development of a rich, unique culture were far more common. Furthermore, due to the similarities in background or language, many Native American tribes actively engaged in cultural exchanges, spreading and further developing their culture through positive interactions between distinct groups, which would eventually allow for the formation of tribal federations like the Iroquois Confederacy and the Sioux Nation. However, the introduction of European colonists and the diseases that came with them effectively ruined the precarious balance of power that had existed in the region prior.
The Columbian Neo Indian Exchange, which happened in the year 1492 can be described as being an exchange of ideas, food, crops, diseases and populations between the New and Old world. The reason why this particular time period is of such importance is because not only would these events would have had an impact on the people living in this era but it would also change the future forever. I will be paying particular attention to some of the new things people of the New World would have been exposed to during the period. In this essay I will focus on crops, technology, livestock, disease and religion. Plants that were involved in the Columbian Exchange had an affect on the culture and state of economy with both the New and Old worlds.
Compare and Contrast the Native American Culture Introduction The Native Americans were the original owners of the United States of America. However, due to the population increase in Europe, the European migrated to America in seek of land for farming, settlement, and spread their religion (Desai, n.p).

Living during a transitional period for Japanese agriculture and working first within modern agriculture, then transforming his techniques himself, had given Fukuoka an invaluable insight on the realities of farming knowledge. The One-Straw Revolution is filled with data accurately representing natural farming as a legitimate alternative to the industrialized techniques developed. Not only is natural farming comparative to ancient techniques of rice harvesting, but with alterations of ancient cultivation with methods to mimic nature, sustainable agriculture quickly becomes restorative and
No matter the difference between diets, the reliance on crops for all three civilizations proves the importance of the Neolithic Revolution for them. As such, no matter how varied the results of archaeological studies were in the ruins of each of these civilizations, the main observation remained that ancient China, the Indus River Valley Civilization, and the Mesoamerican peoples all relied on certain crops for their
Our food systems contain treasures of knowledge from long-evolved cultures and patterns of living in local ecosystems. NEI is rich in biodiversity and thus this is reflected in the varieties of food items of each community. The region is considered by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) as a centre of rice germplasm. Although jhum cultivation, a traditional system of agriculture, is often cited as a reason for the loss of forest cover of the region, this primary agricultural economic activity practiced by local tribes reflects the usage of 35 varieties of crops. This is evident in the diet patterns of communities.

Some of fruits they would gather they would set out to dry so they did not spoil. The soil was really good to grow crops. They also planted food like corn, beans, pumpkins and sweet potatoes.
