Pre-Columbian Civilization: North American Indians Before Europeans

1. Pre-Columbian Civilization: North American Indians Before Europeans

Watch this video for an overview of the cultural groups of Native Americans as they lived at the time of first contact with Europeans. Some of these groupings, like the tribes of the plains, changed so much due to the addition of European influences, such as horses, that there is only conjecture as to how exactly they lived before European contact.

The Apache, Navajo & Mandan Civilizations

2. The Apache, Navajo & Mandan Civilizations

In this lesson, we explore three Native American tribes in, what is today, the America's Southwest and Midwest. Though all three were different cultures, they were all ultimately decimated by the same thing: contact with European settlers.

The Inuit & Aleut Civilizations of the Far North

3. The Inuit & Aleut Civilizations of the Far North

In this lesson, we explore the northern North American civilization of the Inuit and the Aleut, who eked out livings in the roughest of North American climates.

Native American Cultures of the Plains

4. Native American Cultures of the Plains

There are many stereotypical images of Native American cultures from the Great Plains, but how accurate are they? In this lesson we'll briefly explore the realities of the cultures who lived on the Plains.

American Indian Peoples & Cultures of the East

5. American Indian Peoples & Cultures of the East

At the time of the European arrival to North America, there were numerous Native American tribes populating the eastern seaboard. This lesson looks at three the dominant tribes in that region, including the Iroquois, the Cherokee and the Algonquin.
