In the book Empire of the Summer Moon: Quanah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches, the Most Powerful Indian Tribe in American History by S. C. Gwynne, we learned of two stories that may not be well known in history, but they are very astonishing. One of the stories is about the Comanches, who may not have been well known but they became one of the most powerful Indian tribes in American history. We learn of the rise and fall of their tribe and how they became known for their extreme fighting abilities. The other story told in this book was the story of Cynthia Ann Parker and her son Quanah, who was a half- blood Indian. The Comanches fought with the white settlers to take control of the American west.
They studied bison and used them for survival. The Plains Indians thought about the number of them and didn't kill all of them. The Bison were the only thing that let the Plains Indians survive. As I read the myth of how the bison returned, Learned that it was their only mean of survival and one year long ago the bison didn’t return and they starved.
The fewer horses in your possession meant less successful hunting. Many less mobile tribes relied on the river to bring them food. They would claim dead, drowned buffalo that had floated down the river. One villager describes, “the stench is absolutely intolerable, yet the soup made from it which is bottle green is reckoned delicious” (Hӓmӓlӓinen 20). Most geographically stabilized tribes had to receive protein without hunting, even if it meant recycling buffalo
Even though they hunted on land, but they also fished. They fished for almost anything they can eat. The tribes had a lot of the same weapons. All of these tribes used bows and arrows for many things like hunting and war, but there are many other things that they are used for. Another weapon they used were spears.
The community has been together for over 130 years. First of all, both tribes are similar in their culture. The woman both made pottery and baskets. Both cultures are very unique and interesting by their leadership. Each village has its own chief.

A tribe of nomads that were always moving along with the weather, ready and willing to adapt to new circumstances, they similarly attempted to adapt to the invasion of the European settlers between 18th and 19th centuries. Even though they have had a moderate amount of success in that adaptation, as they have established relatively successful trade agreements with French settlers, that cooperation eventually came back to haunt them, as they were
The Iroquois were primarily hunters, farmers, gatherers, and traders. They hunted deer and other game. For farming, they actually had to move to new locations every so often because the soil would lose its nutrients and wouldn’t produce good crops any longer. Navajo people were gathered and hunters like the Iroquois, but something that they did unlike the Iroquois, was raiding. Aside from that, they hunted deer, antelope, and rabbits; grew watermelons, corn, beans, and squash; and gathered wild plants, seeds, roots, and berries.
Native Americans used the buffaloes for shelter, war supplies and clothing. Furthermore, the buffaloes were used for 52 ways for
The Mingo were a highly developed culture and though displaced by Europeans, they have retained many of their customs and beliefs. This Native American tribe continues to show many aspects of its ancestry through daily practices and its religious and social structures even with European influence and displacement to reservations. A part of everyday life for Mingo Indians was the clothes that they wore. The men of the tribe wore breechcloths with leggings, and the women of the tribe usually wore kilts, wore wraparound skirts, short leggings, and overdresses.

In the 1800s, the American government was struggling to rise in the world as a new nation. The leaders were eventually very successful, but along the way they were ruthless to all whom stood in their path. One obstacle that the Americans handed particularly poorly was their treatment of the Native Americans who owned the land prior to the European colonization of the new world. By learning about the atrocities done to the tribes such as the Cherokee, Lakota, and Nez Perce, the human race may refrain from such cruelty in the future. The Cherokee are one of the best known tribes of Native Americans due to the horrendous acts done against them.
A pithouse is partly dug in the ground and covered by a roof. They hunted fish such as Tomcod, Atlantic salmons, mackerel, brook trout, herring, and cod. Other animals they hunted are raccoons, bears, squirrels, beavers, moose, seals, and caribou. As well as, in the winter there hunting game was very small because, it was a normal cold, and not a harsh cold or not that cold. The Mi’kmaqs are a committed, hardworking tribe, because they do things for themselves like hunting and making shelter.
