These stories of creation are not necessarily historically accurate or literal, but they are believed by many to convey profound truths from the beginning of oral story telling to when variations of the tales were recorded such as with Greek mythology by Hesiod and Homer. Many myths, especially those regarding creation and the origins of the universe such as making order of chaos, can often become synonymous with religious tales of creation. These types of stories can become sacred recounts. Like religious stories they feature deities, God like figures, human like figures or animals who have been personified in some way. They take place in vague, non-specific areas of the world and contemplate answers to important questions of life.
There were hundreds of tribes throughout the United States when Columbus first arrived. Many of them are well known such as the Cherokee, Apache, and the Navajo. Native Americans Today Today, some of the descendents of the original American Indians live on reservations. These are areas of land set aside specifically for Native Americans. This helps to protect their heritage and culture.
To the Minoans religion involved the natural world and provided an explanation of natural phenomena such as the seasons. Minoans seemed to have believed in spiritual forces in a spiritual place in the sky and high places beyond the normal world of humans on earth, as well as spiritual forces below the earth. According to Dickinson the Minoans believed that natural forces controlled the weather and the fertility of the land. Evidence suggests that the Minoans were polytheistic and that like most ancient people, they used special rites to please and placate the gods. The Minoans believe the divine world could be accessed through ritual, images on seal stones and frescoes showed this.

In order to avoid the loss of the structure, the relatives often take the obviously dying to a hospital. To avoid the deceased, “Early traders and missionaries were often tolerated by the Navajo because they would volunteer to bury the dead...” (1972: 109). These acts were done so that the ghosts of the dead would be confused and therefore could not come back to haunt the

Americans vs the Great Outdoors In the United States, there has been a strong sense of connection to nature long before Christopher Columbus ever landed in the Americas. Native Americans viewed nature as “something we live within and as a part of [it].” (uwosh.edu) They would sow seeds, hunt, fish, and gather plants and berries to sustain life in the tribe. Native Americas would often hunt and kill wild game as a source of protein in their almost seemingly paleolithic diet. For most Native Americans, it was a spiritual honor to take the life of any wild game, knowing that they could be able to survive until the next meal off of anything and everything the animal supplied. These hunter gatherers let nothing go to waste when it came to the carcass, using the leftover bones for tools and weapons, as well as using the animal hides for clothing and housing.
Native Americans Halito! In Choctaw, a Native American tribe, halito means hello. This word is from one of the many languages the Native Americans had. Native Americans, who were the natives of America before the white men discovered the place, came and started living there. They formed small groups or tribes, hunted, stayed and prospered on the land of North America, now the continent of United States and some parts of Alaska.
In fact, by the time European adventurers arrived in the 15th century A.D., scholars estimate that more than 50 million people were already living in the Americas. Of these, some 10 million lived in the area that would become the United States. As time passed, these migrants and their descendants pushed south and east, adapting as they went. In order to keep track of these diverse groups, anthropologists and geographers have divided them into “culture areas,” or rough groupings of contiguous peoples who shared similar habitats and characteristics. Most scholars break North America—excluding present-day Mexico—into 10 separate culture areas: the Arctic, the Subarctic, the Northeast, the Southeast, the Plains, the Southwest, the Great Basin, California, the Northwest Coast and the
There were two groups put together, one group was the birds they had the Snipe, Deer, and Heron. The reason the deer is in that clan is because it stands for the kill deer, which is a bird. The other tribe was the Animal’s, they had the wolf, bear, beaver, and turtle. In marrige someone from the bird clan couldn’t marry someone that was in their clan such as the Deer, Heron, and Snipe. The Bird clan had to marry someone from the Animal
