2: The Native American Groups

3: The most well know indians were the cherokee nations and the iroquois (Portfolio).Also the Chickasaw were a pretty good size tribe, but when the cherokee tried to steal from them, they ended up giving up and looking for new allies to resist the white people (Tolatsga) . Cherokee pow wow (http://www.prweb.com/releases/2006/06/prweb402867.htm) june 23 2006

4: Other tribes included Creek, Seminole, Menominee,Sauk, and Choctaw (Wacona). Iroquois (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=44719) N.D.

5: Warfare was frequent but no one says who fought who and who got along (U-s-history). | http://www.making-connections.org/2011/01/font-face-font-family-timesfont-face.html (cherokee indians) N.D. | (http://www.sonofthesouth.net/revolutionary-war/indians/iroquois-confederacy.htm) iroquis war N.D.

6: Land Formations and Regions of the Eastern Woodlands

7: Appalachian Mountains- Highest mountain in the Eastern part of the US, Has a area of 737,000 sq. ft., has a Elevation of 6,683’, Highest point is Mount Mitchell (Wikipedia) | Mississippi River- Chief River for main river system in US, length is 2,320 miles (Wikipedi) | Appalachian Mountains, http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/66/AppalachianLocatorMap2.png/272px-AppalachianLocatorMap2.png, N.D. | Mississippi River, http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/80/Mississippi_watershed_map_1.jpg/256px-Mississippi_watershed_map_1.jpg, N.D.

8: Great Lakes- Largest fresh water collection in the US, Area is 94250 sq. ft. (Wikipedi) | Great Lake, http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/57/Great_Lakes_from_space_crop_labeled.jpg/375px-Great_Lakes_from_space_crop_labeled.jpg, N.D.

9: Atlantic Ocean- Ocean that makes contact on all of the East Coast of the US (Wikipedia) | Atlantic Ocean, http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/47/Atlantic_Ocean_-_en.png/300px-Atla, N.D.

10: The Appalachian Mountains were cold so the tribes near them had to wear more hide to keep them warm. The Mississippi River was an excential area for fishing and traveling from tribe to tribe for trading and buying. The Great Lakes were good for fishing and for drinking since it is fresh water. The tribes that lived near the Atlantic ocean had to overcome hurricanes and storms that hit them from the sea. They could fish more since they were near an ocean and they were the first ones taken out by the white settlers invadingl.

12: Natural Resources

13: The Eastern Woodland Native Americans hunted, fished, and gathered fruits, nuts, and berries. Some of the animals they hunted consisted of deer, rabbit, and bear. (Warpaths 2 Peacepipes) | (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Indian_Bear_Fight,_anonymous_painter_(mid-19th_century).jpg)

14: The Eastern Woodland Native Americans used trees, such as the birch, to make things like wigwams, baskets, and even canoes. (Portfolio Educ Kent)

15: (http://www.birchbarkcanoe.net/builder.htm)

16: They also used stones, sticks, animal bones and hide, and some even used metal to make weapons and tools. (Cherokee) | (http://www.occpaleo.com/archery.html)

18: Native Beliefs and Customs

19: The environment did influence their culture and how they lived. These Indians depended on all of the natural resources that they had around them for their basic needs. All of the food, shelter, clothing, weapons, and tools that they had came from the forests they lived in. (Whitewolve, "Eastern Woodland Indians") | Teepee, http://www.communitylibrary.org/Images/Backgrounds/kidshw/wigwam.jpg 2009

20: The environment also influenced their religion. They had a religion called Animism, which is the belief that the universe as well as natural objects had souls and spirits. And because of their environment, they had to use natural objects found in the forests. (warpaths2peacepipes, "Native American Indians") There are many different legends in the Eastern Woodland tribes, but not many were influenced by their environment. Most of their legends had almost nothing to do with their environment. (Native-languages, "Legends of the Woodland Tribes")
