The Forest County Potawatomi have lived in Forest County, Wisconsin, since the late 1800s. Around 1880, groups of the Potawatomi settled in areas near Blackwell and Wabeno and have lived in that area since, as well as in the Carter and Crandon areas. Centuries ago, the Potawatomi people numbered more than 10,000 and occupied and controlled almost 30 million acres in the Great Lakes area. Today, the Forest County Potawatomi have roughly 1,400 tribal members. The Potawatomi Reservation is located primarily in Forest County it totals about 12,000 acres.
Overgrazing- with less rain fall than normal, animals graze and consume more vegetation that what is being produced. This results in the land becoming barren because there are not enough nutrients to support vegetative growth. Overgrazing can lead to soil erosion and desertification on the land. To reduce these practices people can be more responsible be following a grazing management schedule. Some grasses grow well during the summer and some grow well during the cooler months.
For many years the Navajo adopted many practices and regulations from the Pueblos Indians. Another name of the Navajo people is Dine which means the people because they all are considered one. The Navajos, a semi-nomadic from the 16th to 20th century hail from the south western United States and are considered the largest federally recognized tribe in the U.S(Linford 2000). The Navajo are a matrilineal society in which they move often in search of naturally occurring pastures to feed their heard.. This culture began as large hunters and gathers until the Spanish arrived and introduced the practice of animal herding into this culture.
Pronghorns can survive in these habitats because they rarely drink water. Also, most of the populations live 3,000ft- 8,000ft above sea level. ("Pronghorn Fact Sheet." San Diego Zoo Global) Since pronghorns live in the temperate grassland biome, their habitat consists of treeless plains with shrubs and prairie grasses. (Climate:."
Sowbugs are mostly vegetarian, but considered omnivores (The University of Arizona 1997). Found in many flower beds, flower pots, and greenhouses sowbugs are considered pest to many gardeners. But they happen to be very valuable because they are able to circulate soil without eating garden plants. As scavengers though, they also play a
If all one earned was expended on food anyway and there was practically no choice about the kind of food one could get, then eating one's wages was a system less cumbersome than being remunerated in specie and having to acquire the food afterwards. During famines which were quite frequent, one did not starve if one had savings; and many a peasant rose on the social ladder by exchanging hoarded corn for land during times of dearth. Development of Science and Arts: The greatest element in this civilization was its art. Here, almost at the threshold of history, we find an art powerful and mature, superior to that of any modern nation, and equalled only by that of Greece. At first the luxury of isolation and peace, and then, under Thutmose III and Ramses II, the spoils of oppression and war, gave to Egypt the opportunity and the means for massive architecture, masculine statuary, and a hundred minor arts that so early touched perfection.
In order for a group of people to even become food producers they had to live in a geographical area that had domestic able plants, as well as a climate that would support their growth. The transition from hunter gatherer to food producer enabled people to become sedentary. Farmers remained near their crops and had more children than hunter gatherers because they weren’t moving around looking for food. This in turn gave rise to the population growth. Food production also led to the storage of food surpluses.
They’re designed by evolution to eat grass. And the only reason we feed them corn is because corn is really cheap and corn makes them fat quickly … The industrial food system is always looking for greater efficiency. But each new step in efficiency leads to problems. If you take feedlot cattle off their corn diet, give them grass or five days, they will shed eighty percent of the E. coli in their gut” (Foodincmovie). There have been many cases where children have died just by eating food that has been processed by the food
William Goodrich CA119 September 20 Assignment 5 The Diversity of Land and Geography California, the third largest state, is one of the Pacific states located in the West region of the United States. Like the rest of the United States, California is divided into regions. California’s four major land regions include the Coast Ranges, the Inland Mountains, the Central Valley, and the Basin and Range. The Coast Ranges region extends for 4,500 miles along the Pacific Coast of North America. California’s Coast Ranges region is actually part of a larger chain of mountains that stretch from Alaska to California, and into Mexico.
Some tribes would hunt and gather there food while others would use agriculture. Even though they were very different in the ways they lived off the land they were very much the same in the way their attitudes were to individuals in their band. The men and the women were very much equal in the society. The work of the two genders would be very different from one another but there was no value of one over the other. Men were expected to go hunting while the women were expected to process the food when it came home.
