Chapter 1 and 2 Questions 1. Native Americans communicated in a lot of ways. The Algonquina- speaking Ojibwes used scrolls made of birth-bark to record medicines, songs, stories, and other important information. This shows us that a significant attribute of these people is passing knowledge down the line of generations. Spirituality played a huge role in the lives of Native Americans; we often see this in the remains of Puebloan communities. Many houses throughout these “neighborhoods” had a dug-out room, also known as a kiva , which provided a sacred place for ceremonies. Native Americans had a less possessive mindset than most cultures do. Women often chose their husbands, and divorce wasn’t uncommon within these cultures. 2. Agricultural technology caused a large population surge in bigger early societies. Trading networks, agricultural practices, and the use of domesticated animals aided in the incline of the population.
