How did the Quileutes descend from wolves?
According to their ancient creation story, the Quileutes were changed from wolves by a wandering Transformer. By legend, their only kindred, the Chimakum Tribe, were washed away by flood and deposited near present-day Port Townsend (where they lived until Chief Seattle's Suquamish Tribe wiped them out in the 1860s), leaving the Quileutes with no known relatives on earth. Quileutes were thus were surrounded by unrelated tribes, the Makah -- Nuh-Chul-Nuth who migrated down from the west coast of Vancouver Island; S'Klallam to the northeast along the Strait of Juan de Fuca; and Quinault, south at Taholah, both descended from the Salishan. Relations with these groups allowed trade, intermarriage of nobility, and the ostentatious ceremony -- the potlatch -- an honoring giveaway celebration and redistribution of wealth. Occasionally, however, controversy over trespassing caused outbursts of warfare or slave raiding.

The Quileutes are a Native American Tribe residing in Washington state.
Quileute (an Amerindian tribe also known as the Quillayute) is pronounced 'quil-yoot'.
The Quileutes are a Native American tribe that lives near La Push. In Twilight, decedants of the Quileutes can switch between human and wolf form. Almost like the children of …the moon (more commonly known as werewolves) but more like shape shifters
The Quileute is a Native American people in western Washington state in the United States, currently numbering approximately 750. In the Twilight Series, some members of… the Quileute tribe are capable of shapeshifting into wolves, and think of themselves as werewolves.
Grey wolves (canis lupus) are likely descended from Leptocyons (canis leptocyons), which was probably also the ancestor to the coyote (canis latrans) and the red wolf (canis r…ufus).
The quileute are a tribe on the reservation of La Push, they believe they are decended from wolves and hate the ' Cold Ones', AKA the Cullens
Yes, dogs are descendants of wolves. Even the little Yorkie to the huge Great Dane are evolved from wolves. Dogs were domesticated about 15,000 years ago. The dog is a domest…icated form of the gray wolf, a member of the Canidae family of the order Carnivora. Yes.
All domestic dogs are descended from wolves.
No. In addition, the plural of wolf is wolves not wolfs.
Well, first I must ask if you have read any of the Twilight books? The Quiluete tribe is most known for their ability to turn into wolves. However, not all members of the tri…be possess the wolf gene.
Wolf pups were found, and sometimes a lone wolf would hang aroung people after they stated using fire, drawn by the smell of cooking meat.Eventually, some became somewhat dome…sticated , and people began breeding them for certain traits.I imagine dogs to guard other domesticated animals or people came first.Romans used them as attack dogs, large things like bullmastiffs. The Celts deveoped the Deerhounds and Elkhounds. The American Kennel Club [AKC ] currently recognizes 157 breeds with many pending , like cockapoos, Labradoodles and many more " designer dogs.But each and every one shares a wolf ancestor.
If you go back a million years, today's wolves are probably all descendants of an earlier member of the species, canis dirus , the Dire Wolf. If you go back 2 to10 million ye…ars, the wolves likely have descended from an early mammal called Canis lepophagus.
In real life? No the Quileutes definitely cannot transform into wolves. In the Twilight Saga Series, definitely!!
Depends on how you mean the question. Scientist generally think (a) that all dogs are descendents of wolves or (b) all dogs and all wolves are descendents of a common ancestor… in the relatively recent past. Relatively recent, like, more recent than, say,100,000 years, is my understanding. I think that (a) is the more common belief at this point. At one time the scientist Konrad Lorentz thought that some dogs were descended from jackals, but he later retracted that belief. On the other hand dogs and wolves are completely interfertile (as contrasted with horses and donkeys, for instance) and some individual dogs are most certainly descended from an individual, amorous wolf. Not all dogs are Direct descendents of wolves, acctually some wolf-decendent-dogs were breed with others to create most of the dogs we know today
no the do not not that I know of I live in lapush
