FC: American Indians | BY Halle McLean
1: The picture below shows an American Indian dog. It's a very rare breed. | It's also a very cute breed! | They are probably the rarest breed in the world! | Look at the different colors on him! It looks like he has socks on!
2: Now a days, Indians live in small pats of land called reservations. Reservations were determined by the government. Indians reservations are getting smaller over time. | Reservations out west tend to be bigger.
3: Indians repopulated and ate a special type of fish called SHAD. They lived in near by rivers. These fish has a big part in Indians lives. The color of this back round is a similar color to the color of the fish.
4: Here are some Native Americans' weapons. You should see a spear and 2 types of axes. These were used for hunting. | All American Indians made some type of weapon. The bow and arrow wasn't made until the Woodland Indians came! | Before the Woodland Indians came, Paleo Indians invented the atle-atle.
5: There are many different Indian Tribes. The picture above shows the location of where different tribes lived (for the most part). | All American Indian Tribe's name meant something in their language. Since we don't know how to speak their language, we don't know what they mean! (Sadly) | There are over 4,000 Tribe members in Virginia
6: Virginia's Indians do not like to be known as people of the past, they prefer to be called modern people that lived in the past. There are more than 8 recognized tribes. I'll name some of them: Mattaponi, Pamunky, Chickahommany, Eastern Chickahommany, Rappahannock, Upper Mattaponi..... (There's a lot more.) The Rappahannock Tribe does a spiritual dance when the kids become young adults. The Rappahannock Tribe also has songs they sing. All songs have a spiritual purpose. Indians must be respected.
7: The Charekee Tribe believed in myths such as: The Milky Way was made of flour. | The Navajo Tribe's and Peblo Tribe's traditions tell us that they were scattered about by coyotes. Back then,coyotes were known as the great tricksters. | We are the stars which sing, we sing with our light; We are the birds of fire, our light is a voice; We make a road for the spirits, for the spirits to pass over. - Part of an Algonquian poem
