2: Paleo Indians
3: Recent discoveries have shown that our theories about the Native Americans may have been wrong. The discoveries tell us that the earliest Native Americans may have come up to 18,000 years ago and arrived by Beringia, a land bridge made of ice . The earliest Paleo people had no tools to help them. Later on when the Archaic Indians came they invented the atlatl and had a more advanced lifestyle. The Eastern Woodlands made pottery, planted crops, invented the bow and arrow, and they traded. Over all, the Indians technology and lifestyles advanced.

5: The Virginian Native Americans were divided into three different groups, the Algonquian, Siouan, and the Iroquoian. Over thirty tribes of the Algonquian joined to form the Powhatan.

7: Native American lives have been effected a great quantity by the English settlements arriving to the Americas. Native Americans were forced off their land, exposed to diseases, and forced to wear different clothes and believe different religions. Because of the Racial Integrity Act the Native Americans had to go far away just to get an education. They also were not aloud to marry anyone of a different race. One man decided that people were not aloud to put their race on records, it was either white or colored. Because of that public education are getting the wrong impression. The Virginian tribes can't even get money from the federal government. A lot has changed for the Native Americans because of the English.
9: Virginia governor, Bob McDonnell declared November as Native American Heritage Month, and signed the proclamation. Out of the eleven tribes six are still seeking federal recognition. The state and tribal governments are working together to update the standards of learning in Virginia. Virginia's natural resources manager think that we should work with the tribes and raise awareness for their present lives.
