Native American Indians

We had a great time today "viewing to learn!"  Please tell at least four new things you learned about Native Americans.  If you need or want to look at more videos, don't forget there is a hot link on the left!  Have fun learning!!!  Tomorrow we will be choosing our Texas Native American Tribes!!!


  1. I learned that the Indians hunted buffalo by stampeding them over cliffs. Native Americans cut down large cedar trees for houses and ceremonial poles. About a million Native Americans lived north of Mexico. The word "Navajo" actually originated from the Spanish, who called the Dineh people Apache De Navajo called themselves "Dineh,"or, "The people."

  2. Explorers forced Indians out of some land in America. The five major tribes are Creek, Cherokee, Seminoles, Choctaw and Chickasaw. Choctaw left in 1831. The Creek tribe left in 1834. The Chickasaw left in 1837.Cherokee left in 1838. The Seminoles stood their ground and didn't leave.

  3. Today I learned that there were 5 major Native American tribes: Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole. The US government kicked more than 6000 Native Americans out of their homes. President Andrew Jackson signed a paper that said Native Americans are forced to sell their land to the US government. The Chickasaw had to leave first, in 1831. They had to go live on an Indian reservation.
