Although, they are unified because the people that went into the reserves were mostly lied to, and wanted the best for their family. However, this is debatable, they are less unified because the people that fought for their land mostly got shot and killed because the Europeans had better weapons and they also had guns when the Ojibwe had spears and such, and if they worked together less people could of died, they also lost their way of life during these horrific events and were

Though one could argue the Métis, an intriguing melting pot of two worlds, did not have a strong political system, they were certainly a unique ethnic and cultural entity. The Métis, historically, were a group of diverse ancestry; they were the result of the Native’s way of life from the old world and the European culture from the new, blended together. For example, not only did they incorporate elements from the French culture such as arranging crops in seigneurial patterns, but they also had an annual bison hunt, which was a tradition passed down from the Natives of British North America. Furthermore, as well as Algonkian, the language spoken by some Native tribes, the Métis inherited the French language. Combining the two, they created a
Costume: The dress was made with deerskin material along with the boots that were made with animal fur. The apparels during the late 1700’s was hand-made by using skins from the animal herds in their tribe. Because the Shoshone women were gatherers, protected the horses, collected wood to make fire, and arranged the teepees, their status was low and were treated with little respect in the Lemhi-Shoshone society. Sacagawea’s childhood in the Shoshone village near the Lemhi valley contributed mainly to patriarchal society which allowed her to gain special techniques to maintain her own livelihood. Ring- Toussaint Charbonneau, a French-Canadian French trader, claimed Sacagawea as his wife in 1800.
It is believed that the Indians modified the environment because of abundance of game (Bison and carrier pigeons) in America after their disappearance. It is believed that the Indians were keystone species who controlled the number of game based on their hunting habits. (Pg. 53) When the later settlers came into America they noticed that there were multitudes of bison and pigeons to hunt. While early settlers claimed that these multitudes did not exist while the Indian population was thriving in the New World.
This essay is about the ancient Blackfoot Indians. This is the way the Blackfoot Indians met their food need. The men hunted buffalo, and small game like ground squirrels, nuts, berries, and steamed camas roots. The ancestors of the Blackfoot Indians was living in buffalo-hide tepees. Since the Blackfeet moved frequently to follow the buffalo herd so the tepees had to be specially designed to set up and break down quickly.
Our encounter with the Black Feet Indians was very hostile. Only because Lewis had mistaken them for the Atsina tribe. Now the tribe lived I T-Pees and canopies type homes. They would actually put buffalo fur on the sides of their homes to stop wind and keep them warm. There original residents where the Northern Plains.
During these times of insurrection, white vigilance through terror, torture, and killings increased including bribing African Americans and Indians to do the corrupt work for them. The threat of African Americans aligning with Indians complicated matters for the whites. African Americans among the Indians would achieve freedom easier and would in turn help Indians fortify their defenses against whites who sought a policy of removing Indians west of the Mississippi River. The reluctance of many African Americans to leave Florida or separate from the Seminoles was intensified by their importance as food suppliers to the Indians, and they also had a special attachment to the land they cleared, tilled, and planted crops in Florida for decades that more rights and privileges under Spanish and British rule gave them. Consequently Seminole Indian unwillingness to return to Creek authority control in Oklahoma, from whom they had continuously separated for many decades, were important considerations to resist removal for both African Americans and Seminoles.
Throughout the years the Spanish, English, French and Dutch which are four main colonies have had good relationships with the Natives and some of the colonies did not have a good relationship with the Natives. The colonies gave the Natives disease that they brought over from their homeland. Most of the colonies tried to make the Natives slaves and take the all of Natives supplies and food. Some colonies tried to take the Native’s lands so the colonies could build on them. Even though these hard times were happening throughout the years to the Natives there was still some good that came out of all that bad.
Natives The first natives in the area were Indians. They hunted deer,elks, beavers, and foxes for food. They also fished and dug clams and oysters out of the sandy shores. After they dug the shellfish out of the shore they wore the shells for their beauty and value. Because of the great value of them they were traded in far away places.
(pg 108 offer to help and pg 85 native captivity.) Native Americans where formally living in the cabins and they took deer or killed an enemy that spoke another language not right and they had hunters and warriors. And the Europeans had more of the dramatic and more sensitive thing going on in the story and helped save a little boy out of the woods and it had more violent settings
From a more ecological standpoint, grasslands and bison ecologies were being infringed upon which upset the smooth flow of the past forms of hunting and survival among the Sioux and Comanche tribes. The growing number of horse herds and the new large-scale trade greatly impacted the grassland ecology, which than caused a decrease in bison numbers. Horses required much of the resources available in the riverine which took away the resources available for the other hunted animals, most importantly, the Bison. Their lives in the winter were growing shorter and the herds of these Buffalo were not able to live as long as before due to the limited amount of resources. The Comanche Indians experienced an even worse impact from the depleting population
Guns were especially important. Indians used guns to defend themselves against other armed tribes. This trade created problems. As the Indians expanded their hunting grounds to find more deer for the colonists, would sometimes trespass on settlers’ farms or to bump into other tribes. They also began depleting the game animals that were native to the area.
The interior forest was where the colonist and Indians exercised the dispersed trade. The Iroquois and the colonist became a very strong alliance helping each other in battle and gaining land, letting the French traders set up trading post around the Great Lakes and Canada. To keep the peace the French would give gifts to the chief leaders of the Indian
They were hunters and gatherers and were very reliant on their natural food sources such as fishing, hunting for food and other resources which may be of use in their creative path.. In the early 1800s they started with pipes, tools and weapons and have moved onto dishes, bowls, and then into body adornment. In this modern day the Haida tribe have transformed alot from being not only hunters and gatherers but now also relying on the tourist trade for an economical backbone. Physical and geographical
