In the Mendocino area I know of one major tribe the Pomo. My knowledge of this tribe is limited I do not know much about their culture. The main things which I do know about the Pomo Indians is that they are well known for the basket weaving and would travel from inland villages to the coast. There is a lot of historical information on the Pomo’s in Mendocino although I do not know how accurate most of this information actually is. There are several historical middens on the Mendocino coast which mainly contain sea shells but on occasion you can find arrow heads.
The science says that the Bermuda Triangle has compass variation, that an area where the compass doesn 't point true north and the only other place that has this is the the Devil’s Sea ( The Bermuda Triangle 229). Also science has shown that the disappearances in that area in not abnormal in any way and can mostly be explained ( The Bermuda Triangle 230). All this information can show that the Bermuda Triangle might have nothing unusual about it. And “ the information published about the Bermuda Triangle over the years has been inaccurate and makes many of the disappearances seem more mysterious they really were” (Netzley 2). But people still read Charles Berlitz 1974 The Bermuda Triangle even though its full of lies.
One of the most famous hoaxes in history is the Surgeon’s Photograph, taken in 1934 (Schach 13).According to Kallen, the photograph was taken by R.Kenneth Wilson when he noticed something in the Loch while driving. After the photograph was taken it was soon published in The London Daily Mail, newspapers, and magazines.

In modern nature, venomous mammals are rare, with only tree orders of the class Mammalia that produce venom; these are Euripotyphla (moles, shrews, hedgehogs), Chiroptera (bats) and Monotremata (our modern Platypus). Their sting is excruciatingly painful, causing rapid swelling to the affected area. Although not lethal to humans, their blow can be fatal to smaller animals such as dogs. Studies on venomous snakes conclude that poison production is due to the result of evolution. According to national geographic, the same genes that appear in the modern Platypus DNA were modified in a separate process to snakes, suggesting that they might not have the same origin of evolution.
The Native Americans of the North West Coast region adapted to their environment with the uses of fish, trees, and animal hides.

Due to the negative effects caused from plastic it will always play a role in our environment. One hundred different chemicals have been created after the 1950s to the current day. Something people do not realize is that throwing a plastic wrapper on the ground will end up in a birds stomach, burning plastic in a fire will end up in the air we breathe, and recycling plastic will end up back in our homes. The author states, “I don’t even shop anymore. Anything I need will just float
Also, a ‘holy man’ could be a man or woman. Men and woman had pretty equal rights. Whenever times were peaceful, the village had a ‘white leader’, and whenever there was war, there was a ’red leader’. Fishing was a big food source for the Cherokee, they would even use walnut bark to poison the water so the fish would be easier to catch.
This disease left her skin covered in scars- scars that she hated and wished she had never gotten. The disease also made her partially blind, and that is where she got the name Tekakwitha(meaning “she who bumps into things”). It was not only her that got the smallpox disease- her entire family contracted the disease and died from it. With no immediate family left, Kateri was raised by her uncle.

Scattered across the United States due to being driven from their homeland in the North Eastern area, the Shawnee Native American tribe became a diversely skilled group of fighters with leaders who still stand out in history today. The Shawnee tribe originated from the Ohio River Valley, but were forced out supposedly by Iroquois in the 1600s, and spread out to Pennsylvania, Illinois, or even as far as Maryland or Georgia. As time passed and Iroquois power weakened, the Shawnee were able to return to their home, only to be pushed out once more by white settlers. During the American Revolution, the Shawnee fought with the British against the colonists in hopes to keep their land and have the colonists removed. Following the war, the SHawnee
