Civilizations were here for the past 10,000 ago. 9,000 years ago the Great Migration out of Central American along the gulf coast up the Mississippi river to be in the U.S. The reason is unknown by some stories say there were wars going on. Thousands of groups came to the North American continent The migration was very slow because there was no wheel. They didn’t use horses. Some tribes came from Siberia. Origin stories talk about coming out of the ground, coming across the water, and coming from the stars. What Happened Since Then? Northern planes + Southern planes (Hopwell & Idina, Hi Satzina, & Mississippian,ßMound builders) All of these above tribes were in the plains already. (We don’t know a lot about these people) They are also known as early woodland. 1492-Columbus shows up, was not the first one there. Early 1500s: De Soto, Cortez Russians came to the Northwest, Russians killed all of their spiritual leaders. 1620s: First Pilgrims start coming because Europe was overpopulated, diseased. Religious groups were being persecuted-came to America for freedom. 1620s: First incident noticing Pilgrims brought everythingàthey weren’t leaving. Tribes knew they couldn’t be on the defensive anymore-Pilgrims tried to get along w/tribes. Divided into Era’s Time period describing relationship between the tribes and newcomers. Pre-Revolutionary War: 1) Equals: dealing w/ equals 2) Colonials: 1620à1776 1492-1640: in first 150 years after contact, tribal population was reduced by 2/3 from disease mostly. Trail after De Soto: 30 years later all tribes we wiped out. French people making $ on the fur trade, wanted to build allies, and wanted to learn about culture. English- didn’t care about culture, wanted to conquer the people. Fur trade caused interior tribes to choose sides. English or French?
