Native American Culture
From the course of history, certain people that were called Native Americans lived around in
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.
“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. “(Kidport, 1998)
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.”
