The Northwestern Coast tribes became a thriving society using materials, religion and art, and their way of living to their advantage. They became known as one of the richest tribes in North America, due to their vast supply of resources. The tribe’s material usage was so efficient, allowing them to advance quickly. Religion was encouraged through art, stories, and ceremonies. Every person living here was placed onto the social ladder which was very laidback, but very important to the Northwest Coast. The religion in this region was very individual and some of it found only in the Northwestern areas. The tribes’ religious tolerations allowed everyone to get along even if they were not the same religion. Using these attributes …show more content…
The Northwest Coast’s main food source was salmon, thanks to the Pacific Ocean they had plentiful amounts of it. Fishing was usually done in the summer, and stored for the winter, but they were able to fish all year long. Although they did eat and catch other aquatic animals, including whales, salmon was the easiest to catch and the most convenient to store for long periods of time. The Pacific Ocean supplied the tribes with fish, crab, seaweed, whales, mussels, some sea mammals, and fish oil. The people had many methods of catching the fish, the most drastic one was by using harpoons. In order to do this, they had to stab the fish while in a canoe and put the fish in the storage section. This proved to be more useful when catching larger fish such as swordfish, or blue tuna. The most effective method of catching salmon was by using large nets shaped like a V to catch hundreds of fish at a time. This was very useful because one thousand fish could easily feed a family for a whole year. Another way fish were caught was by using traps, most commonly a weir was used. A weir is a structure built in the water typically out of either wooden poles or stone, and is used for catching the fish as they swim in the current. The fishers would use hooks made out of bone and wood to catch fish as well. This was very helpful because they were able to catch whatever size fish they would like. The bigger
They came from Ancient Greece. They are known as the Hallstatt tribe and the La Tene Tribe. The Hallstatt tribe focused on female emotion with the environment. This area was combined with practical labor in the La Tene Tribe. Shamanism is also practiced on both continents.
After crossing to Alaska fifteen thousand years would pass before the flow of nomads finally slowed and stopped on the barren rocks of Patagonia. The migrants belonged to either of two distinct families: Indian or Inuit. They resembled each other in the colour of their skin which ranged from brown to yellow but not red. The First Nations owed their allegiance to their family, their band, their village, their tribe and in the case of several tribes, their confederacy. Families grew into clans and clans into tribes and depending on their access to good hunting and fishing.
All of the tribes are important in their own ways, but for this paper, I will be focusing on these two tribes. “In their own language, the word Potawatomi means "Keepers of the Sacred Fire," but they call themselves "Neshnabek," which means "the True People" (Potawatomi History, 2017). The Forest County Potawatomi tribe is presently
For example, from the packet, Encyclopedia of Native Americans in the section about the Chinook tribe on page 1154 it states that “They caught many fish using nets and hooks and dried the meat for later use or for trade.” Also, in the Native People of the Northwest film it says that “They
Seminole Native American Tribe North America has many tribes. I became interested in Native American culture after learning that there is an Indian tribe named the Seminoles, located in Florida. The Seminole Indian tribe is also located in other states and cities. The development of the Seminole Indian tribe was a huge turning point for the state of Florida.
The Chinook Indians were a tribe of Native Americans who lived in the Pacific Northwest. They lived along the coast of what is now Oregon and Washington State. The men used bow and arrows for hunting elk, deer and sea mammals. The women gathered other food such as shellfish, clams, roots and berries. The Chinook were very skilled traders.

The Seneca-Cayuga Nation did not start as a whole. They were two different groups that decided to come together and be one nation. The Seneca-Cayuga Nation is a relatively small tribe that is located in Oklahoma that came from New York State, yet they still own and operate many businesses throughout the Empire State. The Seneca-Cayuga Nation originated from New York State.
The Environments shape had a part in forming Native American cultures and civilizations. Native Americans would used the surrounding land around them and the environment to suit their needs, they believed in respecting nature and any changes in it would result in a change for them to. The season determined how crops would grow, they were able to adjust their diets and food gathering skills to survive those changing seasons. Native Americans eventually developed an agriculture system based on: corn, beans, and squash, more commonly known as “three-sister” farming. This diet provided by the clever farming technique resulted in high population densities.
The Chickasaw The Chickasaw’s reputation as strong hunters and warriors sets them apart from other tribes. The Chickasaw have their own unique religious traditions, as well as social traditions. They are very similar to the other tribes in the southeastern United States. The rich traditions and history of the Chickasaw helped to shape their everyday life both in the past and modern day.
The Cherokee, also known as the Tsalagi, are one of the indigenous peoples of the Southeast. The word Cherokee comes from the name Choctaw which means ‘those who live in the mountains’. They inhabited Georgia, the Carolinas and Tennessee. The Cherokee were a fascinating tribe with intriguing aspects to their culture.
The development of agriculture and the rise of industrialization generated new cultures and innovations in the new world. Native people in early America developed cultural distinct , men were in charge of the fishing, hunting, jobs that were more exposed to violence, and the women stayed closed to the village, farming, and child bearing. The way of life possessed by natives Americans did not compel them to conquer and transform new land. As opposed to European colonizers, Native Americans subscribed to a more “animistic” understanding of nature. In which they believed that plants and animals are not commodities, they are something to be respected rather than used.
Before the Spanish ship that changed it all, which arrived in the “New World” in 1492, thriving organized communities of native people had centuries of history on the land. That ship, skippered by Christopher Columbus, altered the course of both Native American and European history. 1492 sparked the fire of cultural diffusion in the New World which profoundly impacted the Native American peoples and the European settlers. Prior to European contact, Native Americans lived as hunter-gatherers, living and traveling in groups of typically less than 300 people. These Native Americans spoke over 400 languages and practiced a myriad of different religions (The American Pageant).
Ownership of land was the concept of private property that one person or group owned permanent, absolute control of a part of land. This was difficult to understand for many Native Americans because they have practiced a communistic land system for a long period of time. Land was not a product, perceptible, or an inert item that could be sized and sold. The Native Americans never established a structure or civilization of personal land ownership. Their land was not possessed by people and instead belonged to the community as a whole.
