American Indian History Resources

  • Affected by physical terrain and natural resources, distinct Native American cultures developed in different regions of North America. Coastal groups relied, primarily, on fishing for sustenance, while peoples in the interior depended on hunting for food. More established communities, particularly along the coasts, did engage in social and economic exchanges. Other groups, particularly in the extreme north, were more isolated and nomadic.

    Stereotypes of Native Americans - We are so used to seeing the Land o'Lakes
    Indian maiden, the various school mascots, mascots of professional sports
    teams, etc. that we forget what effect these images have on the ideas we
    have of the people they represent, or on the personal image of the children
    of these people as they must learn to live in this society. The portrait on
    the Indian Head nickel was largely responsible for the fact that Indians
    could not get jobs in Hollywood to play Indian parts. They did not look
    Indian enough!
