The dating of the human remains is vital in not only establishing the age of the first Australians, but gaining a sense of their culture and society. ‘The skeletons are by far the earliest evidence found anywhere in the world of human remains being interred with burial rites’ (Grose, 2003). From a cultural perspective this implies a complex society that respected its dead and had some sense of spirituality and notion of an afterlife (Grose, 2003). The evidence gained at Lake Mungo has put a time frame on the climate change that occurred around 50,000 years ago allowing the commencement of occupation. The human occupation peaked during drying of the climate over the next 10,000 years.
The Arctic Small Tool Tradition, also known as Pre-Dorset, is a circumpolar cultural development which probably originated in Siberia. The oldest sites in North America appear suddenly on the west coast of Alaska about 4,000 years ago. Similarities to the Plano and Northwest micro blade traditions, as well as to Siberian Mesolithic blade technologies have caused considerable debate over origins (Irving 1962; Laughlin 1962, MacNeish 1964; Damas 1969). The technology bears no resemblance to the complexes which were previously present in the coastal regions of Alaska. The warming trend which was still evident at this time may have assisted in the rapid movement of people across the High Arctic.

By focusing efforts on either the extraction of mineral wealth or the production of cash crops, the Amerindian economic system was completely changed to suit the needs and demands of the European settlers. Traditional forms of hunting and gathering and agriculture were disrupted and Amerindians became dependent of European manufactured
According to Nowak and Laird (2010) pastoralism is defined as, “a subsistence strategy involved in herding animals such as sheep, goats, camels, alpaca, reindeer, and cattle” (5.1) The Navajo tribe can be found in the Southwestern region of the United States. It is considered to be one of the fastest growing tribal groups in America. Although they were found in the U.S., this indigenous society started in the country of Canada and eventually migrated to the southwestern region. A journalist Deanna Kingston (2000) noted, “Briefly, Navajo history began in the western subarctic, where they were primarily hunters and gathers, after which they migrated to the American Southwest” (pg.341). Although archeologists aren’t quite sure of when pastoralism first began, it is definite that it took place when the Navajo society arrived to the Southwestern United States.
