Best Answer

All Native American tribes were not the same when the Europeans first came to America, nor are they the same today.

The Native American tribes each had their own beliefs and traditions that often varied depending on the region of the country they lived in. For example, many Native American tribes who lived in the Southwestern part of what is now the United States lived in Pueblos (large buildings made out of sod), while tribes in other areas lived in tepees.

Even among tribes that lived relatively close to each other there were many variations. Many tribes had their own languages, and so they could not understand the speech of other tribes, making it very hard for them to have the same traditions.

Different tribes each had their own traditions, and while some of them might be quite similar with other tribe's traditions, they were certainly not all the same.
