Native American PP

  1. 1. Native Americans The development of a people
  2. 2. Migration People migrated from current day Russia to Alaska and the rest of North America Traveled over the Beringia, the wide bridge of land between Asia and North America People followed the animals who migrated for food because the climate and natural resources were changing
  3. 3. Adaptation As the climate changed, food sources (mammals) died out. Became hunter-gatherers: Catching smaller animals, fishing more, and collecting edible plants and seeds As people found new food sources, they also found use for other natural resources
