I. Peopling the Americas

A. In the last Ice Age, glaciers lowered sea levels and made a land bridge between Asia and Alaska.

The map shows how the First Nations may have come to this continent over twelve thousand years ago. The shaded area; separating Siberia from North America; was a strip of land that appeared during the last Ice Age, and was call Beringia. Some believe people from Asia came

into America via this land bridge.

Pictured above are cliff dwellings in Canyon de Chelly, Arizona,

which were home to the Anasazi Indians.

slide15
These elaborate cities of Adobe multistoried buildings were built high in the cliffs for protection against hostile Indian tribes. Included in the villages were circular religious houses, where a deep hole in the floor, the "sipapu," reminded the people that their ancestors had come from within the earth. "Anasazi" means "basket maker", and these Native Americans developed their basket making and farming techniques as early as A.D. 100. Mesa Verde in Colorado was another home of the Anasazi, who are now extinct. It is believed that the Pueblo

Indians are their descendants.

slide17
Two thousand years ago, nomadic hunters began to honor their dead by heaping earth over their remain. In time, mounds became larger and more complex. The mound-building culture of the southern Ohio Hopewell people peaked about A.D.150. The Great Serpent Mound is a quarter-mile-long prehistoric earthwork in southern Ohio. Though there are no known descendants of the tribe who made it, it is believed to have been built with the participation of the entire population and to have been used as a place of worship. For more than one thousand feet, the serpent body with a partly coiled tail extends along the backbone of a ridge, as shown in the engraving above. At the serpent head is an oval embankment with a heap of stones in the center. An audience could have gathered at this spot to watch or participate in a ceremony.
