I learned Iroquois population is 50 people to 1,000 people. I learned twice a year Mandans empty for the buffalo hunt.

  3. I learned that all tribes are different because of where they lived.And that the Chumash used tar that bubbled up from the ground to create seams in their boats. The Pueblo people built adobe houses that could be on top of one another.That families related to each other are called Clans. And here is one of my questions is, why do women do all the farming in the Cherokee tribe? Who discovered that buffalo could be used for so many things?

    1. I think that your questions are good but I think they used buffalo to trade and they were sometimes poor so they need it to make a living.

  6. I learned that there are so many different tribes and that kids played games similar to football and soccer. I also learned that tribes some tribes pushed buffalos off cliffs so they would die. The pueblo people built adobe houses and I knew a little bit about the pueblo people, because my brother built a clay model. Some of the tribes make two different houses, one for winter and one for the summer. How did the chinook become the best traders? What else did the Makah people hunt, besides hunting whales?

  9. I learned that the natives settled in six basic areas- Southeast, Eastern Woodlands, Great Plains, Southwest, California Inter Mountains and the Northwest Coast. The most popular group in the Southwest were the Cherokee. They lived in the Southern mountains in the river valley. They grew corn, beans, squash, pumpkins, sunflowers and tobacco. They hunted turkeys, deer, squirrels, bears and rabbits. They lived in two types of houses. One for the summer and the other for the winter. The winter home was a round dome and had a wooden door and was made from earth. The Summer home was rectangular and was made out of leather. There was a famous Cherokee who made the first written language.

    Do Native Americans all have the same skin color?
    How many chiefs were there?

  12. I learned that the cherokee grew a lot of plants. The iroquois first fought in 5 groups. The mandans and the kiowas used buffalo a lot. The first people came mostly on a land bridge. I wonder if every tribe has colors? where did their names come from?

  13. I learned that most of the women in the families made food and farmed while the men hunted and traded with other villages. Buffalo is important in many areas because the people need them to make blankets, food and clothing out of them. I also learned that adobe is dry clay that is mixed with water and left to dry to build homes. In the southwest the weather can change drastically very quickly. I want to know if there are any more natives that we do not know about that have not been discovered yet? I would like to know how the Natives celebrated different events and what were they called?

  14. I learned that the Cherokees had their own written languages and twice a year they would flee for the buffalo hunt. They used the buffalo for tools and clothing and water jugs and other stuff. The Mandans lived in lodges that were circle shaped and were covered with grass and dirt. The Mandan women did the farming and men did the hunting. The Hopi women made meals in a large oven made out of clay and water called a adobe. The men farmed the fields.

    I wonder why they made ovens out of clay because it seems like it would melt?
    I wonder how they made so much clothing and tools out of buffalo?

  15. After watching a video about Native Americans I've learned that a land bridge formed because of water levels were lowering. Settlers used the land bridge to come to America. Mandans a tribe of the Great plains hunted buffalos. This is how they did it. Men wore buffalo skins as disguises. They came up to the buffalo and screamed making the animals run toward a cliff and fall. I also learned that Cherokee had two types of houses. One for winter and one for summer. The winter houses were shaped like cones. Summer ones were rectangle shaped and open. I wonder how tepees don't catch fire from the camp fire inside them. How dangerous was buffalo hunting and how many people were killed during the hunt.

  16. I learned that when it was low tide people walked across the land bridge. The tribes of North America were different from each other because of where they settled. Every Cherokee village had a chief. The Cherokees became the first tribe to have written language.

  17. I learned that the Indians came here from Asia because the water level was so low that they travelled to North America.Christopher mistakenly thought he was in East Asia not America. There were six different tribes-Southwest
    Eastern Wood lands, Great Plains, California Inter Mountains, Northwest Coast. The largest tribe was the Cherokee Indians. They hunted and fished. They also had 2 houses- one for the winter and one for the summer. How long did it take the Indians to travel from Asia to North America?.

  18. I learned that the Mandans were a tribe of Indians. The women would farm and the men would hunt. They lived near the Missouri River and lived in lodges. The southwest was home to the Navajo and Pueblo people. Navajos did not live in villages. They lived in Hogans that were miles apart.



    How far did the Native Americans travel?
    How long did it take them to settle in?
    What kind of tools did they have and where did they get them?

  20. They pasted on stories for generations. The Mandins made buffalo fall off of a cliff for food and skin. The Cherokees often played something called mini war. It is lacrosse but with more people. The Iroquois made long houses out of bark. The Cherokees hunted squirrels, deer, and rabbits. There are lots of interesting facts to learn about the Native Americans.
