Aboriginal peoples in Canada comprises of three nationally recognized groups, the First Nations and the Inuit, who were the first Aboriginal groups in Canada, and the Metis, who emerged after the settlement of Canada. According to a census in 2006, more than one million people in Canada identify themselves as an Aboriginal person (AANDC, n.d.). Although there are historical preconceptions of aboriginal people in Canada, many indigenous people have adapted to contemporary societal principles as well as staying connected with their past heritage. First Nations people in the past have been stereotypes based upon old western films (cowboy vs. Indian) as well as the aggressive drunk, or obese and impoverished. Contemporary First Nations people challenge these stereotypes by being a present member in Canadian society.
The Kennewick man For many years, it was theorized that the peopling of the Americas began roughly 12,000 years ago, during the last ice age. As the theory states, what we know as the Bering Strait, was then called the Bering land bridge. This was a direct result of the ice age, as sea levels were 300-400 feet lower than they are today. The lower sea levels supposedly provided the uncovering of said land bridge, which in turn provided the pathway that Indians needed in order to migrate to lands where food was more available. This land bridge, connecting Siberia and Alaska was then traversed by people leaving Asia and thus settling into the Americas.
Kaitlyn C. Pell July 10, 2012 The Yup’ik The word “Yup’ik” itself means “real people” or, to more accurately present the intended cultural connotation, “genuine people”. It is derived from the word for person (yuk) and the word for real or genuine (pik). The Yup’ik are members of the larger family of Inuit cultures that inhabit Alaska (as well as parts of Canada, Russia, Labrador, and Greenland). The Yup’ik homelands are within the subarctic region of southwestern Alaska, and were thought to have arrived there some 4,000 years ago from Eastern Siberia. Originally, they lived only along the coast.
The state of Maine has many cultural influences that have shaped the state over the years. The earliest culture known to have inhabited Maine, were the Red Paint People, a maritime group known for their elaborate burials using red ochre. They were followed by the Susquehanna culture, the first to use pottery. By the time of European arrival, the inhabitants of Maine were Algonquian-speaking Wabanaki peoples. The Wabanaki Confederacy (Wabanaki, translated roughly as 'People of the First Light' or 'People of the Dawnland') are a First Nations and Native American confederation of five principal Nations: the Mi'kmaq, Maliseet, Passamaquoddy, Abenaki and Penobscot.

Settlers are one of three main ethnic groups in Labrador. There are the Naskaupi, Innu and the Inuit. Millicent was a mixture of all three ethnic groups, her mother had Inuit ancestors and her father had Innu ancestors. Her childhood was spent travelling back and forth from Rigolet in the summers and spring, then Burnt Place in Double Mer during the winter and fall seasons. This was for better trapping and fishing opportunities which is what Millicent’s family lived off of.
Authorship of the Châtelperronian is still the subject of much debate. The Americas were colonised via the Bering land bridge which was exposed during this period by lower sea levels. These people are called the Paleo-Indians, and the earliest accepted dates are those of the Clovis culture sites, some 13,500 years ago. Globally, societies were hunter-gatherers but evidence of regional identities begins to appear in the wide variety of stone tool types being developed to suit very different environments.

The first Muslim-Arab Conquests began in 652-664 AD. These people were likely the ancestors of most ethnic afghans currently living in Afghanistan and the surrounding area. AFTER ISLAM EVENTS In 1504 - 1525 AD, Babur invaded Afghanistan and established the capital in Kabul. The Russians Occupied Panjdeh in1885. Following that, the Russians occupied Zulfiqar and Aqobat and took Panjdeh.
The area that is now Rwanda is believed to have been initially settled by the Twa, who were closely followed by the Hutu, probably sometime between the 5th and 11th centuries, and then by the Tutsi, likely beginning in the 14th century (“Rwanda Genocide”). A long process of Tutsi migrations from the north culminated in the 16th century with the emergence of a small nuclear kingdom in the central region, ruled by the Tutsi minority, which persisted until the arrival of Europeans in the 19th century. The arrival of the Europeans brought about favoritism and a defining social difference between the Tutsi
By making an analogy with modern hunter-forager societies, anthropologists infer that these bands were relatively egalitarian. Humans also developed varied and sophisticated technologies. I. Archeological evidence indicates that during the Paleolithic era, hunting-foraging bands of humans gradually migrated from their origin in East Africa to Eurasia, Australia, and the Americas, adapting their technology and cultures to new climate regions. A. Humans used fire in new ways: to aid hunting and foraging, to protect against predators, and to adapt to cold environments.
