What do you know about native americans?

Report as

Like what? Theres a lot to know. There are several hundred different registered native american tribes and most of them are real ones. You need to at least choose a region. Choosing a specific tribe or nation would be even better because north western natives are much different from south eastern natives and plains natives were very different from coastal tribes, far northern tribes (alaska, canada) were very different from desert tribes, etc. Some nations like the huge Iroquois/Algonquin (or Atabaskan, i get those mixed up) Federation and the Cherokee Nation were extremely well organized and civilized for their time with highly organized forms of government and politics, trade, social responsibility and powerful militaries, while other tribes were very primitive and nomadic. Languages varied widely as well, even within nations.

Which "Native Americans" exactly? There are a rather large number of tribes and each one of them has their own culture and beliefs. So you'd have to specify which one you are talking about, in order to get any real detailed information.

The point was - which tribe are you wanting information on?

every tribe

All tribes are different, so if you are wanting to know more about your ancestry, then it would be a good idea to find out which tribe specifically you are descended from. Otherwise you'll end up having to go through a ton of irrelevant information. And literally - without a general idea, there's no way to answer your question with any sort of actual details.

There were hundreds of tribes, ranging in geography from the Inuit and Yupik people's of the Arctic to the Mayans of Mexico.

ya i do i am native american i know more than all of you about them

From this thread it's apparent you didn't even know there were hundreds of tribes and they came from Asia.

You keep claiming to be Native American but never identify which tribe and seem to be ignorant of basic facts about history.

I grew up a few miles from the Iroqouis Reservation, and my parents have a cottage close to Seneca Nation territory. I know quite a bit about the tribes of New York State, and have familiarity with many others.

@jack - which one? At the very least you should know the name of your own tribe, and then we'd be able to actually answer your question.

They were slaughtered by the diseased-ridden Europeans that came here. And that's what Thanksgiving is about. Betrayal

They slaughtered or ran off the people who came before. It's what conquerers do.

@jackismypuppy
He's right, but that's as far as their origin goes. The popular theory of how Native Americans came to the Americas was that they followed a herd of livestock from (If I remember correctly) what is now Siberia to Alaska and went from there.

Correct- the people's that became known recently as Native Americans crossed the Trans-Siberian land bridge from Asia around 14000 years ago.

They were the first people to live in North America, the surrounding islands in the Caribbean. Some were friend, others foe. Had spears, bows, hatchets. No armor, lived in tepees. Not all Natives got along with each other. They were the first people used as slaves.

I am part Cherokee and Chickasaw, they were forced to march to Oklahoma from North Carolina. Many died along the trail. That is why they called it the Trail of Tears. Some of my ancestors made the march. What else do you want to know.

They were very great hunters/fighters, know for stealth. Many of them lived around Michigan, Ohio, etc. Some tribes were the Hopi, Potawatomi, Soiux, Cherokee, Ottawa. I have much respect for them. And they're not called Indians!!!
