History of the American West Research Paper Topic: Historical dynamics pertaining to the Blackfeet Indians of North America. In the next several paragraphs I’ll be discussing many of the Historical dynamics pertaining to the Blackfeet Indians of North America. More specifically I’ll talk in depth about the customs and daily life of the people of the Blackfoot Confederacy. And in wrapping up this paper I’ll also mention how this Confederacy of sub-tribes way of life changed dramatically, both while the Buffalo was disappearing from the plains, and after the Buffalo was wiped completely from the plains for good. “Siksika (‘blackfeet’, from sikisinam
A study has done by Daes (1996) states that Australia indigenous people had spoken by more than 250 languages. Most of them were come from many European countries. Many of languages already have extinct. Now a day, about fifteen languages still being spoken by Australian aboriginal but English is become now main language among them. In addition, aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are living in main cities, regional, remote, and very remote area.
By 1622 The Indian Massacre occurred and they Indians killed over 300 colonist. The colonist retaliated by gifting wine to the Indians, yet the wine was poisoned and killed nearly 200 Native Americans. Jamestown began to grow in size and population, yet this expansion came with a price. There was three consequences that came from growth.
Also, they would dump their human waste into the water and make it even more contaminated so when the people of Jamestown would drink or use the water it would make them ill and even to the point that they died. Within a couple of years they also faced drought which many people died because of starvation. The colony went to desperate measures by forcing the Indians to trade their grain, the Indians didn’t give up easy though as it says in the document ‘some harshe (harsh) and cruwell (cruel ) dealinge (dealings)by cutting of towe (two) of the salvages (Indians) heads and other extremities.” Another reason why the colonist died in the colony of early Jamestown was because of the skills they had. When the first ship arrived in Jamestown they brought over a total of 110 males in 1607. 47 of the men were gentlemen, back then, a gentlemen was a person of wealth who was not used to working with his hands.

The Choctaw Indians once lay claim to millions of acres of land and established some 50 towns in present-day Mississippi and western Alabama. With a population of at least 15,000 by the turn of the nineteenth century, the Choctaws were one of the largest Indian groups in the South and played a significant role in shaping the politics, economics, and armed conflicts in the region. Thousands of Choctaws remained in the Southeast even after removal and are known today as the federally-recognized Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and the state-recognized MOWA (Mobile and Washington County) Choctaws of Alabama. Other Choctaw people live in the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, in Choctaw communities in Texas and Tennessee, and as families or individuals throughout the United States. The peoples who became known as the Choctaws (they call themselves Chahtas) originally lived as separate societies throughout east-central Mississippi and west-central Alabama and all spoke dialects of the Muskogean language.
He had combed through Spanish archives to track the eclipse of the Taíno. “Their culture was interrupted by disease, marriage with Spanish and Africans, and so forth, but the main reason the Indians were exterminated as a group was sickness,” he told me. He ran through the figures from his native island: “By 1519, a third of the aboriginal population had died because of smallpox. You find documents very soon after that, in the 1530s, in which the question came from Spain to the governor. ‘How many Indians are there?
As the Native people of the Subarctic Shield Archaic followed suit, Pre-Dorset peoples occupied the abandon interior land. However, by 800 B.C., all evidence of them disappears. The story of Arctic Small Tool tradition in Manitoba, represented by the Pre-Dorset occupation, is significant in that the sites represent the most southerly occupation of this culture. Giddings (1953) first identified it in northern Manitoba. The Thyazzi Site on the North Knife River was later tested by Nash in 1965 and assigned to an early to mid-Pre-Dorset occupation on the basis of the lithic assemblage (Nash 1969:48).
They originated in Northern and were considered to be the earlier inhabitants of the land. Their name was derived from the large amount of mounds that were built throughout America. The mounds people were primarily located east of the Mississippi river in states such as Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, and also in the Cumberland area that consisted of the Great Lakes region and the Atlantic cost. The largest majority of these mounds were located in the Mississippi and Ohio valleys. Various types of societies, ranging from sedentary farmers to mobile hunter-gatherers, built these mounds over a long period of time.
The murder ignited widespread hostilities which finally turned into war between the Pequot and colonists. Uncas and Roger Williams helped the English colonists to fight the Pequot. Some neighboring tribes remained neutral during the 1637 war. Nearly 600 members of Pequot tribe were killed when their port near Mystic River was set on fire. The massive killings crippled Pequot’s resistance; they moved away from their territory.
