The central focus of my learning segment is about the two Indians tribes the Algonquin and the Iroquois. The content will be focused on the two tribes, their way of life, where they lived, and their different cultures. The goal of the unit is to teach notetaking skills that will last well into their future. Each lesson will touch on a different aspect of the tribe and will have embedded note taking strategies. Read alouds will be used to model the note taking strategies for the unit.
The Iroquois are a group of native americans.The Iroquois are divided into 5 dans. The Mohawk, Seneca, Oneida, Onondaga, and Cayuga tribes. Later a sixth nation, the Tuscarora tribe, joined the confederation.
Throughout the years the Spanish, English, French and Dutch which are four main colonies have had good relationships with the Natives and some of the colonies did not have a good relationship with the Natives. The colonies gave the Natives disease that they brought over from their homeland. Most of the colonies tried to make the Natives slaves and take the all of Natives supplies and food. Some colonies tried to take the Native’s lands so the colonies could build on them. Even though these hard times were happening throughout the years to the Natives there was still some good that came out of all that bad. The Natives traded with the four colonies for items that they normally did not have. The Natives also helped the four colonies when they
Trent University, and the surrounding area of Peterborough, Ontario, is home to a very diverse cultural heritage. Located 25 km outside of Peterborough is the Village of Omemee, home to 1100. This is my hometown and homeland. Omemee is settled on a intersection where the Pigeon River meets the Trans-Canada Highway, originally making expansion and transportation, easy via road or waterway. The communities first name was decided from our towns decommissioned paper mill owner, William Cottingham and inherently named the village Williamstown. After this, it was renamed Metcalfe because of the thriving cattle industry rising in the areas surrounding Omemee such as Downeyville, Reaboro, Dunsford, and Bethany. It was a short time before the community
Before the Spanish came to the Americas there were Natives who already lived on the land. Each Native tribe had adopted their own beliefs, their own culture, and way of living. As soon as the Spanish had arrived to the Americas, more so Mesoamerica they demanded that the Natives adapt to their culture and ways of life. The Spanish had viewed the Indians as savages and desired to convert them to Christianity or Catholicism. The Spanish had destroyed the Native Americans’ statues of their Gods, abused them in order to convert, and deprived them of their freedom. On August 10, 1680 the Indians united to take back what was theirs to begin with. This outburst of riots led to what is known as the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 who was led by Popè. Although
The first people to live in a land are called indigenous people. This means they were the original settlers of a certain place. Over the course of time, new settlers from other countries such as in Asia or Europe came to other places seeking fortune, slaves, and many more. For example, the British colonists wanted to make an empire because of profitable trade, competition within Europe, and religion. They were very determined in building a successful empire, and they succeeded. Like other places such as Canada and South America, North America was colonized by European countries. North America was colonized by France, Britain, and Spain. Today, I will be investigating the Iroquois tribe that is located in North America, and explain life as a member of the Iroquois tribe during the time when the settlers first came.
In the late 13th century there was a large movement toward finding new routes by sea to trade with Asian countries. This movement was motivated by the greed of monarchies to accumulate wealth; gain power against rivals; and to spread Christianity. However, the primary motive of exploration was commerce. The Europeans were “starved for gold and silver,” which they needed to purchase goods in Asia, such as spices gems, silks, spices, and other luxuries. As countries, like Spain, set sail in attempts to locate new western trade routes to China, they’ll find what becomes known as the New World, and will have a major impact on the lives the indigenous peoples—Native Americans—through, personal interactions, the transplantation of animals, plants,
Tradition is the customs or beliefs that has been pass on to generation to generation. Native American have their own tradition such as when they trade, it meant a welcome gift or a way to gain relationship. However, the European trade and their material goods had a negative impact on their lives because they slowly lost their identity. While Native Americans was adapting to the Europeans’ homes, they did not noticed that they are started to becoming them. For example, in chapter 3, All Stuff of Life, Calloway stated that; “Archaeologists excavating eighteenth-century sites in the eastern united states often find it difficult to determine whether a settlement was Indian or European on the basis of the material unearthed.” This shows that Indians
The French colonies in North America did not attract many settlers; therefore the French also enslaved Native Americans in farming and mining. The French exploited existing inter-tribal alliances and rivalries to establish trade with the Huron, Montagnais and the Algonquis. This tribe then competed to be the exclusive intermediaries between other Indian traders who also lived along the St. Lawrence River and up to the Great Lakes. Native Americans did the majority of the work, tracking, trapping and skinning the animals. The French traders then exchanged textiles, weapons and metal goods for the furs of animals. This trade strengthened traditional clan leader’s positions by allowing these tribes to distribute the goods to their clan members,
The colonization of Indigenous peoples has dramatically affected their health, and health-seeking behaviours, in a myriad of ways. The Indian Act of 1876 was, in essence, created to control the Indigenous population. The Indian Act laid out laws and regulations that tightly regulated the lives of natives economically, ideologically, and politically. This included a wealth of ways in which their identities were stripped away, and in which they were taken advantage of by the Government of Canada. This has resulted in a reduced quality of life for Canada 's indigenous population, as well as adverse health problems, and prejudicial perceptions that we still see the impact of today. The documentary series, 8th fire, by Dando and Ingles (2012) supports this claim. The Indigenous peoples ' have long felt betrayed by the government that they had signed a treaty with, so why would an Indigenous person seek health services from this establishment? The mistrust between the Indigenous peoples and the Government of Canada is the result of colonization, specifically the Indian Act, and it undoubtedly impacts Indigenous peoples and their faith in, and ability to get proper care from, the healthcare system.
Canada is a country that was established as a union of two nations, the English and the French, that agreed to live side by side. Throughout Canadian history, there were periods of peace and agreement, when the two nations were able to put aside their differences and share Canada as their homeland. There were also periods of hardship, when the English and the French were in conflict and could not find solutions that pleased them both. The two nations living side by side in one country was the the basis of the French-English relations in terms of the conscription crisis of World War I, the Quebecois philosophy of “maitres chez nous” and the French language laws.
Predating back to the arrival of the European settlers in the New World. The British settled in their first permanent territory in 1607, called Jamestown in Virginia, while the French formed their capital called New France in Quebec a year later. Each colony had its own interests and difficulties, and each sought to carry them out in their own terms. Not only the American continent was separated into two by massive hills and mountains, but equivalently divided in two fiercely by two great European powerhouses. For many years to come, the French and the British would have little contact with each other. For the French explorers, North America was a place rich in furs and easy trade of other valuable goods rather than a residential region. Their British counterpart, on the other hand, viewed North America as a home for poor and dissatisfied British citizens. However, with different interests and ambitions, North America territory promised a source of wealth and good economy due to its rich prospect in mining, farming and fur trapping. As a result of this conflict of interests,
When we think about culture, we automatically associate it with all of the stereotypes that are known. However, many of us never actually take the effort to find out the true culture of a place, which is why when we go to other countries we are clueless as to the culture and its practices. I believe that it is important to learn about the culture and any relevant information about a country before going there, which is why I have decided to look into the culture of the country Canada and its social practices. The country of Canada is in the continent of North America and it is well known for the friendly culture and open minded citizens.
Much of what Canada stands for as a country comes from the basic principle of bilingualism and multiculturalism. We as Canadians have always stood for being accepting of different cultures that even today, live coexisting within our borders. We achieved Bilingualism because the French and English worked together to make canada independent. Having Canada as a bilingual country made both of the distinct cultural groups of Canada happy. In the late 1900’s the immigration policies, and multiculturalism was created. After this immigrants from all over the world started arriving in Canada.
The First Nations taught the Europeans different methods of transportation. They taught the how to build small boats, canoes and other types of transportation. Canoes and small boats are an excellent source of transportation because they are strong, lightweight, and buoyant which makes travelling easier. The aboriginals also introduced snowshoes and toboggans to the Europeans, which are the only ways. This helped the Europeans because they are constantly travelling.
