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
The Cree live all over Canada. The geology of the terrains the Cree occupied were slopes, precipices, low mountains, woods, wide waterway valleys, sand rises and prairie grass. The scene of the Plains district can be portrayed as primarily level with prairie prairies. The topography affected what they ate and wore in light of the fact that they had constrained sustenance sources and creatures in their surroundings. They needed to fulfill the greater part of their needs from what was in their surroundings. One route in which geology influenced the sort of safe house was in the materials their surroundings accommodated shield. Geology additionally affected how they voyaged.

Canada on the other hand, has only been in the game for 150 years. The British colonization in 1867 had a major impact on the First Nations and has left a serious mark on their community. From cultures to everyday life to the government, these nations hold very unique traits that separate them apart.
The Alaskan Bush is one of the hardest places to survive without any assistance, supplies, skills, and little food. Jon Krakauer explains in his biography, Into The Wild, how Christopher McCandless ventured into the Alaskan Bush and ultimately perished due to lack of preparation and hubris. McCandless was an intelligent young man who made a few mistakes but overall Krakauer believed that McCandless was not an ignorant adrenalin junkie who had no respect for the land. Krakauer chose to write this biography because he too had the strong desire to discover and explore as he also ventured into the Alaskan Bush when he was a young man, but he survived unlike McCandless. Krakauer’s argument was convincing because he gives credible evidence that McCandless was not foolish like many critics say he was.

The Dene and Inuits are very similar in many ways. For example, they both live in the northern part of Canada. The Dene people lived in the bottom of the north, while the Inuits lived right above them in the middle part of Northern Canada. They both also made 1 story houses/huts that were specially designed to keep them warm. They had to do this for the reason that is if they didn’t they would freeze from the bitter cold. They both made many things the same. They lived in the northern part of Canada and made insulated houses, but they also did many things differently.

The sailors Pilee, Portagee, and Kakuktak, each have their own way of fitting in and connecting with the people.
