Seeking religious freedom, more land and more raw materials, the Pilgrims from England set on a voyage to a new world. Arriving to a land already inhabited by Native Americans, the pilgrims were unwelcomed. Overcoming the differences and finding peace between each group, the Natives helped the Englanders prosper. The inference people can assume is from the numerous times Native Americans are mentioned in early American history such as “Of Plymouth Plantation” and “The Constitution of the Iroquois Nations” that the foundation of America began with the help of Natives. The Constitution of the Iroquois Nations was an inspiration for the American constitution.
In 1845 Manifest Destiny was a phrase that John O’Sullivan came up with. This phrase was made to describe the mindset that the people had the God-given right to make the nation grow. The right to expand throughout the land. It was the idea that the American culture had superiority over any other culture. It also birthed the idea that the Native Americans were inferior to the people that were exploring the land.
Imagine someone going up to you and saying " hey American person", even though the fact may be that you don 't wan to be called that.

At the beginning of our course, we watched the 1990 film Dances With Wolves, directed by, produced by and starring Kevin Costner. Set in the 1800’s during the American Civil War, Dances With Wolves follows Lieutenant John Dunbar who, after being posted at a virtually abandoned fort, comes into contact with the Sioux tribe of Native Americans. At first, they are scared of each other, but despite the language barrier, they manage to communicate. The storyline shows how their relationship develops to the point where John is given the name ‘Dances With Wolves’. We had a class discussion about the film, and we all agreed the film showed that the Americans hated the Native Americans because they did not understand them or their culture.
Douglas Dalton Professor Bober ANTH 3440 6 March 2018 History of The Chippewas/Ojibwe Tribes History and Culture Ojibwe, or Chippewa, tribe of Native Americans does not have the same share of recognition in the modern culture, despite being one of the largest one in terms of population size and. A tribe of nomads that were always moving along with the weather, ready and willing to adapt to new circumstances, they similarly attempted to adapt to the invasion of the European settlers between 18th and 19th centuries. Even though they have had a moderate amount of success in that adaptation, as they have established relatively successful trade agreements with French settlers, that cooperation eventually came back to haunt them, as they were
The Navajos, a North American tribe, is a world culture that is most commonly known for their beliefs and their contribution to modern myths and the arts.

The Navajo’s location proved that they were at a geographic location that supported the agricultural way of living. Not only did they solemnly depend on the crops as their main food source, but they were hunter gatherers as well.
The inuit, Haidas, and iroquois are different in many ways, and I am here to explain them. First of all, they are the same in a way because they all are dedicated to hunting, but that is something that all tribes need to do to live. Next, it's fishing. If you haven't noticed, all of these tribes like, and are experts at fishing. They all used pretty similar tools, for example, all of them use bow and arrows.
During the French and Britain‘s conflicts, the Iroquois Confederacy consisted of six nations: the Mohawk, Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, and Tuscarora. Although, I’m sure all of these nations have interesting backgrounds, I’ve decided to find out more about the Cayuga nation. The Cayuga nation has a very interesting culture, which includes the food they eat and the religion they’ve chosen to practice. The main foods involved in the Cayuga diet included corn, beans, and squash, also known as, the Three Sisters.
