This is who made the decisions and rules in the Iroquois League
The Great Council, which is still practiced today among modern day Iroquois people
These are three forest resources and what they were used for.
Wood for homes and tools; rivers and lakes to drink, wash, water crops, and fish; animals for hides (clothing, blankets, housing), bones (for tools),meat.
This was a way the Iroquois hunters showed a deep connection to and respect for nature
They spoke to and thanked the animals they killed.
This was why longhouses had shared, centrally located fires
Since many families lived in the longhouse, it was easier to share a fire than make separate ones. Also, fewer, shared fires kept smoke down inside the longhouse and were safer than having many fires.
This is the Iroquois League and why it was formed
The Iroquois League was formed by a group of 5, and then 6 Native American tribes. Its purpose was to establish peace and cooperation. Together, all members made decisions that affected all the tribes in the League.
Most Plains people got their food by these two methods
Farming and hunting buffalo
These are three ways horses affected the lives of the Plains people
They could hunt buffalo easier, traveling was much faster and they could transport more, warfare with enemy tribes was easier
This is how Plains Indians measured their wealth
In horses (not dollars like us!)
This is where many Cheyenne Indians live today
This is how tepees are the same as lodges (1 way). This is how they are different (what’s unique about each?)
Both are a form of shelter for the Plains Indians. Lodges are permanent homes made of earth-packed walls built over a hole. Tepees are mobile and used when on the hunt. They are made of poles and animal skin walls.
This describes the climate of the Southwest Desert Cultural Region
Hot and arid (dry)
This is why Hopi built their homes on the top of mesas and had no doors on the first level of their homes
To protect them from enemies and wild animals
This is true of Hopi today (2 things)
They blend old ways and new ways. They still have their capital city of Oraibi. Many Hopi live on a reservation.
This is the connection between Pueblo and Anasazi housing.
Their housing customs are similar. They are built of mud and clay (adobe) and are apartment building-like, rising several stories high. Both built their homes at the top of mesas, or up high
This ceremony honored the Kachinas and asked for their help
The Hopi Dance
This is a Potlatch
A party where the hosts give gifts to the guests to show generosity and wealth
This is the main role of the shaman in Kwakiutl culture
They were healers and cured illnesses, often by performing special dances.
These people could become a shaman in Kwakiutl culture
Men and woman
This was the cultural purpose of the totem pole and the potlatch
They were both a way to show wealth
This is why Kwakiutl made clothing out of cedar bark.
They used the natural resources available to them.
These are four foods eaten by the Kwakiutl. This is why they ate these foods.
Wild game, fish, nuts, berries, seals, whales. They did not need to grow food because there was such an abundance of natural resources available. All they had to do was hunt and gather.
