FC: Native americans | By Ben
1: The Eastern Woodlands are an Indian Tribe that were very skilled and talented. They did not have to travel because they were skilled farmers. All though they were very skilled at farming they would still hunt and gather. In fact they were the Indians that invented the bow and arrow. Farming wasn’t their only skill they were also very talented at making pottery. They would also trade tons, and tons of cargo.
2: The Algonquian, Iroquian, and Siouan were the three main Indian language groups. Each of these languages were not written down. The languages were a bit similar. These names are not the real names, but names that archeologists made up to refer them to. Many of the language groups are in North America.
3: Indians people mistake as the past but Indians are our modern day present, and future. Mataponi Indians are always helping us by donating Shad. In Virginia also known as Commonwealth there are 4,000 tribes but only 8 recognized tribes. They weren’t treated fairly so they left at young ages for OK for better education. Now due to the allowed voices of Indians schools are now teaching the full picture.
4: Woodland Indians have tradition for the dead. They would also smoke tobacco. For Indians innovations such as baskets, and pottery made farming more popular. Cherokees were very skilled artisins whith nature. They belived in lots of things . The Algonquians settled in Northeastern America. They wore moccasins decorated with porcupine quills.
5: Indian reservations used to be big, and all over the place, but now they are so small. There are only two reservations now the Mattaponi and the Pamunky. It is very hard for these tribes to keep their religion going because there are less people now that the land is smaller. Although these tribes seem very much alike they are very different.
