Native American Culture 2 From the course of history, certain people that were called Native Americans lived around in teepees. Different tribes were formed, different colonies were developed. Native Americans accomplished their own life styles, and learned among each other in an ideal way. Native Americans have their own special way of communication and learning. Many tribes learn like the Egyptians, they use paintings on rocks and demonstrate with their hands. The Native Americans have a sense of living that Americans today overlook. In today’s society people travel by cars, trains, boats, planes, and by bicycles. The Native Americans lived by horses and grew a bond with their animal companions. Native Americans lived in teepees, and made their clothing out of animal skins. Many different tribes where listed within America, one popular one is Apache, they resided in Arizona, Mexico, and Texas. Apache Tribe, “The word "apache" comes from the Yuma word for "fighting-men" and from the Zuni word meaning "enemy." The Apache tribe consists of six sub tribes: the Western Apache, Chiricahua, Mescalero, Jicarilla, Lipan and Kiowa. Each sub tribe is from a different geographical region. The Apache Indian history says it was the other way around, that most of the Athapaskan speaking people migrated to the North and a few stayed in their homeland. “(2005) The Apache have an interesting way of doing things, they did not live in teepees they lives in domes. The domes were made out of, cottonwood and grass. Like Apache other Indian tribes have their special way of being architects. Cherokee Indians reside within the fallowing states, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Cherokee Indians dealt with the “Trail of Tears” which resulted in what American’s called, “Indian Removal.”

Native American Culture 3 The government pushed the Cherokee Indians to the regions of the far west. Native Americans,” The journey was equally horrible for the other Southeastern tribes when their turn came. Between 1834 and 1838 most of the Creeks, Cherokees and Chickasaws suffered removal.”(2007) Within this removal many of the Indians within the Cherokee tribe suffered great loss. Within this loss they gained a lot of good from this tragedy. Many stories were formed to explain the removal to the younger Indians. One story that has been told was, “The Legend of the Cherokee Rose.” This story planted the seed within the minds of the youth. They explained how the American Government pushed them to the far west. How they established their new found customs within their new habitats. Many tears have fallen upon this “Trail of Tears,” that the Cherokee wish they never had to let fall. Many have died, many have gained ill. They kept moving far west as demanded so none would get shot.
