FC: Indians | By, Anna-Claire F.
1: The Paleo Indians did not have that much technology because they arrived in Virginia 15,000 years ago. The more years in the past you arrived here, the less technology there is. They also did not have that much time to rest. They had to work all day They did not have the best tools and the best materials. The Paleo Indians were different than the Archaic Indians. One difference is that the Archaic Indians had more technology then the Paleo Indians because they came here only 6,000 years ago, Another difference is the Archaic Indians were sedentary (means that they are not active). They are sedentary because they did not hunt and work all day like the Paleo Indians did. They grew crops, but still hunted a little bit. Growing crops made it easier to live a life because they were able to make a village just for growing crops. | There is another Indian tribe that developed even more technology. They are called the Eastern Woodlands, They only came here 3,000 years ago. They were like the Archaic Indians, but the Eastern Woodlands had more technology, they also grew crops. and they hunted a little bit, and lived in a village. An awesome thing about the Eastern Woodlands is that they invented the Bow and Arrow. That tool made them better hunters.

The Algonquian had a group of tribes that were called the Powahatans, this group had 32 tribesout of 40 tribes in it. They lived mostly lived in the Coastal Plains region. The Iroquian were known as deer hunters and they lived in the Coastal Plain. 80,000 Indians still live there today and they were people of longhouses. The last language group is the Siouan, excellent mound builders.The tribe in the Siouan language group was called Monocon they were the ones who built mounds for the dead. Lots of the language groups traded, but from different tribes.
4: The Indians had a hard life. They went through all sorts of things like the law that only people in the same race could marry. This started in 1924 and ended in 1963. After the law was gone Walter Plecker made a law that when you have been asked what what your history was you could not say you were an Indian or English you could only say you were colored or white. It is very Important to the Indians to keep their history and this law made it hard to do. These Indians were not reconizedby the federal government yet, so they had to have schools in churches or in other buildings, the schools were not getting money from the government because they were not noticed by it yet. The schools they had were called Mission schools. The Mission schools did not get the kids that educated because Walter Plecker had the law that in the end the history was gone.
