The Seminoles built their houses in a unique way, and the houses were built the way they were for good reasons. Until the Indian Removal Act of 1830 went into effect, the Seminoles of North Florida built log cabin type homes. When the Seminoles retreated south, they needed new structures. Because the indians were hunted, they needed homes that they could destroy easily. The homes also needed to be suitable for life in the swamps.
When comparing the Southwest indians to the Eastern Woodlands indians I found there were some differences, in their homes, the indians in the Southwest had hut like homes made of stone or adobe while indians in the Eastern Woodlands had lodge like homes made from wood. Farming and hunting seemed to be big for the Eastern Woodlands, but most of the Southwest people were just gatherers and hunters when they could be, although there were some successful farmers. Both areas had hostile groups of people, but the two groups in the Southwest later became more settled and peaceful. The Eastern Woodlands and the Great Plains had a few differences, again their homes being one of them. Great planes had two different types of people, the nomadic hunters
Also, only men could be chiefs. Women had their part, too. Women generally cooked, weaved, and made pottery to cook things in. Occasionally they would farm. In the Navajo culture, there was five genders: woman, man, nadleeh, masculine female, and feminine male.
Even though the soil was weak in quality and very rocky, they still managed to farm some crops including corn, rye, peas, squash and pumpkins. In their farms they would raise various animals such as chicken, sheep, cows and pigs. In their towns, most people were very helpful towards each other. They would help their neighbors if they needed to build a barn or if they had had a week harvest. They wouldn’t use African slaves because the farms were either too small or too poor.
He didn’t understand his grandmother obsession over food. He says in his essay that he knows his grandmother "obsession wasn’t with food... or money". Jonathans grandmother had one plate that everyone hailed to which was chicken and carrots. By that time Jonathan was not yet a vegetarian. Granted, the day came when they were both with their babysitter enjoying a delicious plate of chicken with carrot that his grandmother had prepared.
They still were tanning a buffalo hide on the reservation. Although they were not allowed to kill or have any weapons so they had to go against the law and find a way to kill and get the buffalo. They were tanning it to make coats, shoes, clothes, The westward expansion helped people in many ways from keeping their culture going or starting a new one. This was a big step up from when they had to do everything on their own now they could build cities and own farms and cattle.The people would also start to
Tom Lee was born February 18, 1885; just 20 years after the 13 amendment, which prohibited slavery nationwide. Although slavery was abolished, the south was long from a place of equality, for a Negro male or female. In the 1920’s the south was a place, thick with “the Jim Crow law of; segregation, prejudice, hatred, and inequality toward blacks, conflicts was prominent everywhere. However, the characteristics and behavior of Tom Lee on May 8, 1925 reflect the values that were instilled into his life regardless of the way he may have been treated. Tom Lee was just an ordinary black man striving to make a living for his family, by working on the Mississippi River as a field hand and levee worker for C.W.
The American Revolution, was an inspiration to black people and they’d hoped the words and rules of the Patriots go for them as well. But that wasn’t the case. When all of the Armies had gone away from the land, we were a country of farmers founded by notions of freedom. We had over 700,000 slaves working in the US at its birth. They had no rights to anything and this would last generations.
Sharecropping was a major impact on the African Americans. Different types of sharecropping have been practiced worldwide, but in the rural south, it was typically practiced by former slaves because it was the only opportunity they had. Sharecropping allowed families to rent small land from a landowner who was typically white. They would then give a portion of their crops to the landowner at the end of the year, but would eventually end in debt because they didn’t have enough money for their needs. Africans then had to keep working for the landowner to pay off their debt.
Walker's choice of diction in "The Flowers" not only further developed the mood and tone of the story; it also alluded to the setting as well. To elaborate, in the beginning of "The Flowers", Myop's family's home is described as a "sharecropper cabin," suggesting that the story takes place in the aftermath of the Civil War, as sharecropping was a system of farm tenancy which began common after the Civil War because although African-Americans were freed from slavery, most had no money to support themselves, and were essentially forced to stay on their former masters' plantations, as while they were not enslaved, racial discrimination was rampant, which often limited the options of African-Americans seeking work, particularly those in the South, to jobs concerning manual labor such as farming.
John Adams, although not as widely known as George Washington or Thomas Jefferson, he has done a lot of work to help America Born on October 30, 1735, in Braintree/Quincy, Massachusetts. His parents were John Adam Sr. and Susanna Boylston Adams. He grew up on his family farm with his two younger brothers Peter and Elihu Adams.Since Adam 's parents gave John a lot of freedom, he cared very little about school and spent most of his day outside doing all types of outdoor activities, his favorite being hunting. Because of this, his father tried to teach him a lesson about school, by asking him, “What would you do, Child?” John simply replied, “Be a farmer.” The next day, his father took him to his field and worked him as hard as any adult, so
