Native Americans are the indigenous people of the United States, they have an extensive rich history, and stories of sorrow and bravery.

The culture of the Jamestown colony is shaped by disease, war, and racism, however, their economy grew successful enough to support their colony social and economically. George Percy’s A Discourse on the Plantation of Virginia describes the hardships, disease, war, and misery, that they faced at Jamestown. Percy describes the disease the most he said that the diseases would leave the colonists with swelling fevers and overall misery.

The tribe made an influence on the Westward expansion and made war between the Americans,so many people wonder how the Americans influenced the tribe and where are they now.
Having been born and bred outside the United States, the city I grew up was more influenced by the people of India rather than Native people. Therefore, I began to search the Internet for Native tribes where I came across the Duwamish tribe. The Duwamish tribe lived in Seattle, Washington from the past 10,000 years, making them one of the oldest Native tribes that we know of in the entire world. Today, the Duwamish tribe are one of the few federally recognised Native tribes. In this research project I intend to gain a better understanding as to how a Native tribe that has existed since the glacier age has escaped being eradicated through both wars and disease.
Christopher Columbus and Hernan Cortes were both famous Spanish adventurers during the Age of Exploration. When the explorers came upon land, they encountered two different cultures. In 1492, Columbus encountered the Taino people, and in 1520, Cortes encountered the Aztecs. The two cultures that the men encountered were different in more ways than they were similar in regards to how the natives treated the men, what weapons they had and their war-like behavior, their technologically advancements, their housing and architectural structures, and even their religion.
What exactly was covered in this paper? Well considering the opening question was “What makes pueblo houses so unique?” I would say that Pueblo Houses were covered. What makes them so unique, for starters they were made hundreds of years ago, second they were used by the same people for hundreds of years, and last but not least they look like modern day apartments.
The Anasazi were an Indian Tribe, whose disappearance still remains to be a mystery today. They were a civilization built in as early as 1500 B.C… occupying what is known as the four corners (Roberts, David 2003). After building their cliff side pueblos, it is said the Anasazi abandoned their homes and belongings in Mesa Verde and left in a hurry. Based on the Navajo language, the word Anasazi translates as “ancient enemy” (“10 facts about Anasazi” 2015). They are thought to be the ancestor of the modern pueblo Indians. The Anasazi were hunters and farmers, they planted corn, squash, beans and many other crops. They did most of their farming on the ground but stored a lot of their goods in pits they had around their homes. The Anasazi were also

Some of the work they left behind are the mounds that have been found in Ohio that were used by the Native Americans as temples, for residence or for burials. The mounds created by them are very interesting because, besides their amazing size, the accuracy found in them is astonishing. Many of these Native American mounds have bases which are in the shapes of squares, circles and octagons. These bases display angles that are just within a degree of difference from a right triangle. In Mathematics Used by American Indians North of Mexico a fascinating fact is made when it is stated, “It is an interesting exercise to explain how a people, living in the wilderness, with no tradition of geometry and little tradition of construction could have made not just one but four nearly right angles on so gigantic a scale.” Like stated in the article, it’s amazing how American Indians could display such accurate constructions when they had no exposure to mathematical concepts that could allow them to be so
