The Beothuk were the aboriginal inhabitants of Newfoundland when Europeans arrived, and were the first indigenous people the Europeans encountered in North America. They are now an extinct tribe, at least as a culture. Recently, dna has been found in Iceland that indicates, they may, indeed, have some descendants still living.
Algonquian tribes and their names
This is a list of tribes or sub-tribes who are part of the Algonquian linguistic group. (from the word "alligewinenk" which means "come together from distant places.") This is a work in progress. There are probably others. The Algonquian-speaking (linguistic) groups include:
Thousands Nationwide Show Solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux
For months, the Standing Rock Sioux tribe has been peacefully opposing a proposed 1,168-mile-long fracked oil pipeline that would threaten their water, their sacred sites, and their future. In recent weeks, this struggle has gained international attention, and it's easy to see why.
The Winnebago Wars
The Winnebago War was a brief conflict that took place in 1827 in the Upper Mississippi River region of the United States, primarily in what is now the state of Wisconsin. The Ho-Chunks were reacting to a wave of lead miners trespassing on their lands, and to false rumors that the United States had sent two Ho-Chunk prisoners to a rival tribe for execution.
Native American slavery
Many Native American tribes practiced some form of slavery before the European introduction of African slavery into North America; but none exploited slave labor on a large scale.
Native American groups often enslaved war captives whom they primarily used for small-scale labor. Others however, were used in ritual sacrifice, usually involving torture as part of religious rites, and these sometimes involved ritual cannibalism.
Missions of California
The twenty-one Spanish missions in California established by Catholic priests of the Franciscan order between 1769 and 1834, were supposed to expand Christianity among the Native Americans living in the area. The local natives were forcibly relocated from their traditional dwellings, villages, and homelands to live and work at the missions as virtual slaves. Disease, starvation, over work, and torture decimated these tribes. Mission Indians were from many regional Native American tribes; their members were often relocated together in new mixed groups and the Spanish named the Indian groups after the responsible mission.
