Native Americans In the United States, Native Americans (also known as American Indians or simply Indians) are people descended from the Pre-Columbian indigenous population of the land within the country's modern boundaries. These peoples were composed of numerous distinct tribes, bands, and ethnic groups, and many of these groups survive intact today as partially sovereign nations.

Some of the most Popular Native American tribes include: Alpache,Chickasaw, Cherokee,and Eskimo

Religion of the Native Americans: Native American Church, Protestant, Roman Catholic, Russian Orthodox, and Traditional Ceremonial Ways(unique to specific tribe or band)

Most Native Americans live in houses called Tepee's or Wigwams: a wigwam is made of sticks and mud woven together and a Tepee that is made from buffalo hide

this is an image of a wigwam it is made of woven sticks and mud along with tree skins

this is a Tepee it is made from buffalo hide most everything on the Tepee is made of buffalo

many tribes needed the buffalo to survive especially the Sioux tribe that used practically every part of the buffalo

sadly the Sioux tribe were made to leave their homes and move to Reserves, this ended up in a battle of death
