Prior to the colonization of the Americas, the buffalo was crucially important to the Sioux life until its near extinction. Nearly every activity, for instance, hunting, praying, cooking, making art, sewing, teaching, singing and celebrating embraced and respected the buffalo. Certainly, the buffalo remained the epicenter of the Lakota Sioux life and maintained its status as the survival source of the Indians originating from the past to the present era. The role that the buffalo upheld in regards to the culture, livelihood, and identity of the Lakota was incalculable (Ostler,
There is a vast amount of evidence that Paleo-Indians hunted large mammals such as Mammoths and Mastodons, but not as a primary food sources. It is hypothesized that when fauna was killed by the Paleo-Indians the event was ceremonious, with social and symbolic significance in the family units (“Paleo-Indians”). Though, with more recent discoveries, it is thought that the Pre-Clovis communities were responsible for the extinction of megfauna in the area. This implies that paleo-humans hunted more frequently than for just ceremoniously. Research also suggests through the concept of uniformitarianism, that there were likely different roles for women and men in the community.
Other tribes surrounding the area helped the light skin people (Pilgrims) to grow their own food and survive the cold winters.

One of the reasons archaeologists assume the settlers went to croatoan is because they relied on them for food since they didn’t know how to farm the land (Heckscher). In addition, after stumbling upon a unique find dated to the 16th century, archaeologist Mark Horton explains that the evidence is the colonists “assimilated with the native americans but kept their goods.” Horton says this because the unique find was a piece of slate believed to be of european origin considering the natives didn’t have that sort of technology (Pruitt). The slate was found further inland in around the same area as a native tribe suggesting that europeans had lives there. Before sailing back to england, white left specific instructions on what to do if the settlers had decided to move the colony or if they were in danger. They were instructed to carve their destination into a tree trunk and put a cross above it if they were at risk.
Many voyages to American to retrieve goods, caused the trade of goods, animals, plants, and ideas. This movement is known as the Columbian Exchange. Although goods, animals, and such are harmless the most important thing that was brought to America was “Old World” diseases. Just like the redwood forest, that once stretched from the Rockies to the Pacific, and the once numerous bison, the Native Americans almost disappeared.

The forest that grew up on these islands is a mosaic of muskeg, alpine scrub and lichen-draped conifer rainforest. It is dominated by x Gustav Tjgaard western hemlock, interspersed with Sitka spruce and small amounts of western red cedar and prized Alaska yellow cedar. The forest floor is a nearly impenetrable jumble of toppled trees, spiky Devil’s club and densely matted berries and forbs. Until the 1970s, scientists spent little time studying the temperate rain forest. The world’s attention was focused on

Hunting, at that time , became the luxury pleasure of the noble class, especially in Western countries, where the upper class obtained the sole rights to hunt in certain areas of a feudal territory. Nowadays, hunting is known as a kind of sports usually for recreational purpose.

Blizzards were so strong that they could trap livestock and homesteaders under the snow. During the long winter of 1886, horses and cattle died when their breaths froze over the ends of their noses, making it impossible for them to breathe. Building a home and establishing a farm was a challenge for even the most experienced farmers, but the free land, abundant wildlife, and richness of the soil made the challenge hard to resist. Choosing Your Homestead Choosing the right location for a homestead was very important. Newly arrived settlers, known as "sod busters," looked for land which featured a stream or creek and small rolling hills which served as windbreaks.
