How did Native American Indians arrive?

Contributors have said:

There are different theories out there. Some believe Native Americans are descended from early Asians who arrived during the last ice age, when the sea level was low enough that there was a land bridge between Siberia and Alaska. The ancient Siberians, a race related to the Mongolians, Chinese, Koreans, etc. crossed this land bridge into Alaska. Over the centuries, they migrated south to completely cover the continents of North and South America.

Another theory has it that Native Americans came by boat across the Pacific, not in a single journey but rather island hopping, populating one island after another. Hawaii, for example, is already halfway from Asia to North America. The development and existence of Polynesian society is also a proof-of-concept.

The Inuit are believed to have crossed more recently, across an ice bridge spanning the Bering Strait. The Inuit are originally from Siberia and resemble modern Chinese. Their people have spread out from Siberia to Alaska, Northern Canada and Greenland.

Native Americans, however, are consider to be cousins of Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, etc., but are still categorized under the same race as them as Mongoloids. Native Americans have closer resemblance to Pacific Islanders than they do with East Asians, whereas Inuit resemble East Asians.

Note: There is a great deal of evidence that supports these theories, including DNA analysis indicating Native Americans are more closely related to those descended from east Asia. Even today, Native Americans are classified as Mongoloids along with their East/Southeast Asian cousins.

Most of the oral traditions of Native Americans claim they came into being at or near their homelands, though there are vague hints of these theories being true even in oral tradition. A coastal tribe living in the Alaskan panhandle claims they are descendents from their ancestors who continually coast-hopped south (setting up new settlements along the coast and moving by following the coast by canoe). Looking at the map, there really isn't all that far north you can go without hitting the Bering Strait, where the land bridge would have blocked access at the time. It is possible they crossed the bridge this way, and their stories have, in the 10,000 or so years since, lost the minor detail of where the sun set in relation to the coastline at each settlement (and compasses are a relatively modern invention). However, scientifically speaking, cultural traditions regarding origins are generally unreliable, unless you'd prefer to believe there are over a million deities and several hundred (at least) have produced their own slight variation of humanity throughout the world.

Many people are unaware that the Siberia to Alaska Migration happened after there were already Indigenous peoples in what is now known as the Americas.

Archaeological evidence from an old village shows there was a pre-existing culture that was vastly different from the new comers. In the archaeological dig the layers show that over time the cultures eventually blended into the culture that existed when the European colonists came. This is a very small group that has only a part of only one mtDNA marker in common with the Siberian reindeer herder tribe. To say that all of Indigenous Peoples in the Americas have this marker is absolutely and unequivocally incorrect.

It is now a popular yet incorrect belief among the general population of the "western world" that Indigenous Americans are nothing more than Asians living in north and south America. This could not be more incorrect.

The bottom line of it all is that Indigenous Peoples of the Americas are unique races of human beings that are not Indigenous to any other place in the world.

Why did the Pueblo Revolt fail?

Numerous causes existed:

  1. With the Spaniards gone the Pueblos lost their reason for unifying in the first place.
  2. They picked up their old ways and began their old rivalries.
  3. Not all of the Pueblos were happy that the Spaniards were gone.
  4. The Navajo, Apache and Comanche who for years had been kept at bay by the Spaniards increased their attacks on the Pueblos.
  5. Some had become genuine Christians under Spanish rule and had close family ties with the Spanish colonists.

The Arid Southwest, mainly in southwest Arizona and New Mexico.

What type of shelter did the Pueblo Indian have?

Pueblo (Spanish for "town") refers to a group of indigeous people (American Indians) of the southwestern United States. They were descendants of the prehistoric Anasazi peoples, and their shelter/housing reflected those of their ancestors.

These pueblo-living tribes were sedentary because they were farmers, so their structures were permanent. They were built with masonry (same thing they used for their pottery) on cliffs with large shallow caves. The cave top was the roof and the doorway leading to other "apartments". Ladders were used to get from one level to another. There were also "kivas" and other differences between the many tribes that were connected to this pueblo way of life.

If you still live at home when you turn 18 is there a law that you still have to follow certain rules set by your parents?

  • Think about this .... you consider yourself an adult so start acting like one. If you are working you should pay a percentage of your wages to your parents. After all, you want to become independent and you eat their food, use the electricity in the house and your mom probably does your laundry and cooks the meals. How do you think you will handle being out on your own paying approx. $800 up for rent, food, electricity, phone, gas if you have a car, medical, etc. It's obvious you know the rent is higher out there, so now that you have become an adult you have to take on adult responsibilities. As far as rules of the house, it is no different than following rules of the law, rules of the apartment building you may one day live in, rules of the road, and on and on. Life is rules! However, I do see where 18 year olds come from. Parents expect them to act like adults, but don't give them the full responsibility of one. If you are working then sit down with your parents and tell them that you will pay rent (decide on a fair rent depending on what you are making wage-wise.) Also tell them that you need your privacy and if you are paying rent then you should have more responsibility in your private life. If your parents have a spare room downstairs and you aren't in it, move into it! If you are out with friends then be quiet when you leave and come home and don't disturb your parents. Your parents love you so it doesn't hurt to pop your head in and say to your mom or dad "Hey, going out with friends, be back by midnight." Don't have your friends phoning at all hours of the day (get your own phone by the way.) Like anything else in our lives it's about respect. They should have respect for your privacy and you should have respect for their rules and their feelings. There are no freebies in this world. You think you are an adult then stand solid on your feet, sit down with your parents and work something out.
