(Hornby, 2010) Nimi'ipuu, and Shoshoni- Some of the examples of Native tribes found in Idaho. Mappings: (Digital Atlas of Idaho: Idaho's natural history on line, n.d Native tribes of Idaho The above tribes as indicated in the map, migrated into Idaho as one tribe, which its main economic activity was hunting and gathering. They later dispersed and went to different destinations as they looked for more food and natural resources that could complement their lifestyles. This led them to adopt different cultures according to how nature influenced their lives. There are three main cultures found in Idaho which include the Plateau culture, the Great Basin culture and the Great Plains culture. (Digital Atlas of Idaho: Idaho's natural history on line, n.d). Culture areas in Idaho Description of the tribes found in Idaho The shoshoni: This tribe is believed to have migrated from their motherland into the US in the early years of 8,000 years ago. They have lived in New Mexico (as it is known today), and Arizona. Due to harsh climatic conditions which made life unbearable, they migrated in different directions. Others landed in the interior of Mexico. Another handful population moved to settle around Lake Mohave and survived mainly on hunting and gathering. This particular group did not settle in this region for long because of minimal resources, which could not satisfy the population. About 4,000years ago, the Shoshoni people stared to move into Idaho and by 1700s; there was a small but reasonable number of people who had settled in Idaho State. (Robert, 2003) The Shoshoni people occupied the Great Plains and their culture is known as the Great Plains culture. (Digital Atlas of Idaho: Idaho's natural history on line, n.d) Characteristics of the Shoshoni The Shoshoni people never embraced the element of politics in their life style. They mainly lived in extended families, which were built from intermarriages. They vastly depended on the resources found on the great basin region for a livelihood, mainly for food. They were nomads who would live in the valleys in the winter season, and their summer was sent in the mountains. They carried out their activities together e.g. they did their pinion nuts harvesting together, hunted together, even though they lived distantly from each other. With the way they lived, this could only mean that a peculiar strong bond existed amongst them. Their main economic activity revolved around hunting and women involved themselves in gathering. Fruit was an indispensable part of their diet. The Nimi'ipuu: Unlike the Shoshoni people who spent the better part of their early lives living in the desert, Nimi'ipuu occupied the river region. The rivers found here were Salmon and Snake which had clear and fresh water. The mountainous region in southern Idaho provided a suitable hunting space where they would find desired game meat. They also migrated from time to time for the sake of looking for food like the Shoshoni. It is vital to note that the Nimi’ipuu had a vast share of resources and this encouraged some of them to settle therefore, forming small villages. They had water in plenty compared to ...
