In the 1500’s the Comanche tribe was originally merged with the Shoshone tribe in the Upper reaches of the Platte River. Only when the Europeans arrived did they split up. Around 1700 the Comanches acquired horses and started moving south from the Shoshone tribe. They made a stop in the Central plains before continuing on to an area that extended from the Arkansas River to Central Texas. As the tribe migrated south their population began to increase dramatically due to an abundance of food and an influx of Shoshone tribe members. The tribe itself was split into 8-12 independent groups and often fought amongst each other over land rights and food.

There were over 150,000 Songye people divided into at least 35 different subgroups. They were ran by a chief, also known as the Yakitenge, who was helped by various different secret societies such as the Kifwebe association. It is believed that “the creator god of the Songye is Efile, although sacrifices are not made directly to him. Much attention is focused on familial ancestors, to whom sacrifices are made to encourage the well-being of the individual and the family” (“Songye Tribe of Africa”, 2015).
What differentiated these people from each other at the time was their nomadic tendencies and their ability to adapt to the environment in which they chose to reside(Shultz, Mays, & Winfree, 2010).

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.
