Native Americans of the Southwest By: Darren D
Tribes For my presentation I am doing the Hopi and the Navajo. Both tribes are similar and different in their own ways They are both in the Southwest region
Shelters The Navajo live in a round wooden house covered with sand called a Hogan. They used sand to protect themselves from hot heat The Hopi lived in a square adobe house called a pueblo. The adobe protects them from desert heat and cold winters
Food Sources was great for them cause the climate. They both hunted and they farmed and there crops included corn, beans, squash, cotton and hunted antelope and deer.
Clothing They both used the animal skins they got from hunting the antelope and stitching cloth together But later on they had sheep to make wool for clothes. Then they grew cotton and went up from there
Everyday life The men farmed hunted and built. The woman cooked and collected berries The kids helped the mother with her house work and the father or men hunt for food.
Tradition and Ceremonies They would dance around a fire praying to a certain God every time. They did their tradition at least once a year to please there Gods They were both very organized about when they would schedule the celebration before
Crafts The Hopi and the Navajo made colored rugs using dyes they made they also dyed sand to make sand paintings They also made jewelry out of many materials like silver, gold, polished rocks, and crystals. They made polished rocks by cleaning the rock very well with warm water
Miners Materials They both mined in deep caves for iron and gold. Many of them died from the caves toxic air and the caves collapsing.
Weapons and tools The Hopi made bows, arrows, spears, and hoes. The Navajo made spears, rawhide shields, pump drills, and rakes. Later the Hopi and the Navajo traded and both learned how to make each others items.
