Only a few Kickapoo village names have survived Etnataek, Kickapougowi, and Kithlipecanuk. The Kickapoo lived in fixed villages, moving between summer and winter residences; they raised corn (maize), beans, and squash and hunted buffalo on the plains. Their society was divided into several exogamous, named clans based on descent through the paternal line. By the 19th century, as a result of scattering in small villages to prevent attack, central tribal authority had broken down, and chiefs of the various bands had become autonomous. From the beginning of European contact, the Kickapoo resisted acculturation in economic, political, and religious matters, retaining as many of their old ways as possible.
They would farm and hunt in one area until the soil was exhausted or the wild animals ran low. They would stay in any one place from 5-20 years. The Mohawk are a part of the Iroquois, which are very connected in culture and language. They made a confederacy around 1600, and there are no know records of any other group of tribes doing this before 1600. Originally composed of 5 tribes (the Tuscarora didn’t join till 1722) the tribes had a place in the metaphorical longhouse.
More than any other man, Daniel Boone was responsible for the exploration and settlement of Kentucky. His grandfather came from England to America in 1717. His father was a weaver and blacksmith, and he raised livestock in the country near Reading, Pennsylvania. Daniel was born there on November 2, 1734. If Daniel Boone was destined to become a man of the wild, an explorer of unmapped spaces, his boyhood was the perfect preparation.
While Davy was still in dresses, his father moved the family to Cove Creek in Greene County, Tennessee, where he built a mill in partnership with Thomas Galbreath. When Davy was eight years old, the mill was washed away with his home. After this disaster John Crockett removed his family to Jefferson County where he built and operated a log-cabin tavern on the Knoxville-Abingdon Road. (This cabin has been restored and is now located at Morristown, 30 miles Southwest of Greeneville.) The young Davy no doubt heard tales told by many a westbound traveler - tales which must have sparked his own desire for adventure in the great western territories.
As mentioned in the introduction, the Quapaw tribe did not originate in northeastern Oklahoma. They in fact, were first known to be in the Ohio River Valley, which consists of several states in the northeastern United States. The first historical reports of the Quapaw Tribe were noted in the DeSoto Expedition of 1539-1543 (Thompson 360). Historians are unsure as to when the Quapaws actually settled in the lower Mississippi Valley and Arkansas River Valleys. Some believe that they may have not settled in these areas until the mid-seventeenth century, but others say that evidence they have found contradicts that information.
Historically, the Cherokee lived in mud and thatch houses, and these buildings made up their towns (“Cherokee” 152). While there was a system of leadership over the entire tribe, each town also had a council system. These councils were made up of representatives from seven clans: Deer,... ... middle of paper ... ... their designated land in the west. It was a 900 mile trail, and took over nine months (Blackburn). In March, 1839, the Cherokee arrived in Oklahoma.
indicate that there were different types of settlements that served different functions. Professor Larkin explains that there were local camps which had a living function and extractive locations where archeologist found evidence of hunting functions. In addition, James Crutchfield reports in his book, It Happened on the Mississippi River, that prehistoric American Indians, in 700 B.C.E, constructed a “metropolis along the stream’s eastern bank”, now known as Cahokia. Cahokia’s citizens resided in a “four-thousand-acre-town” and in this town there were over one hundred platforms and burial mounds that range from little mounds to mounds that reach one hundred feet high. Inhabitants made their living off the river by “farming the rich bottom lands…fishing the local streams, and hunting in the surrounding forests.” Rich bottom lands, streams and forests are only a few of the many assets that attracted ... ... middle of paper ... ...t of the region it used to occupy.
Even though they thought that they were the first to arrive, they were soon driven out by a tribe called the Ottawa indians. The indians had been there for about 2 to 3 years prior. The “Lake Country” was apart of the sisterhood of states in 1837 with a population of 87,278 people. The first person to make a settlement on Manistee grounds was a man named John Stronach on April 16, 1841, with his son Adam. He and 15 other men made a saw mill soon after.
The Louisiana Purchase allowed for the United States to acquire the land west of the Mississippi, including Kansas. Kansas was chaotic when the United States acquired it. Although the technical ownership over the land now known as Kansas was the United States, the native people had lived on the land many years prior to its seizure. There were many indigenous tribes that lived in Kansas, prior to it being a state. Some of the tribes include: Arapaho, Cheyenne, Comanche, Kansa, Kiowa, Kiowa Apache, Osage, Pawnee, Plains Apache and the Wichita.
Many sites have been found in New England that shows evidence of tool-making, ritualized inter-band exchanges and other non-hunting activities. By around 8,000 BC, the spruce-lichen forest was mostly replaced by pine and hardwoods, this evolved into other types of food causing the Paleo-Indian era to give way to the early archaic. In New England, early Archaic projectile points were found, these differ from the Paleo-Indian points because the archaic points are generally stemmed and notched for more effective specialized hunting (Salisbury, 1982). Salvatore Trento tells of one point found in Monhegan, Maine: A tiny arrowhead or possibly a small dagger was recovered from an excavation of a rubbish heap by the island archeologist. A C14 test of the organic material associated with the deposited metal artifact gave an approximate date of 1800 BC.
