The first inhabitants of North American lived here for thousands of years before the European settlers came. These people spread out over the continent in hundreds of groups called tribes or nations. The tribes or nations may have had much in common about the way they lived, or very little. Tribes might have had different customs, spoke different languages, lived in different dwellings, and hunted or gathered different foods.
The first thing you will need to do is decide which tribe you will research. This image on the right has names of many North American tribes. It is important for you to choose a tribe that you can find plenty of information on. If you start to research a tribe and cannot find a lot of information, you may need to pick a different tribe.
