Transcript of Texas: A Land Of Contrast

Texas: A land Of Contrast How Does Geography Impact The Way Society Lives? Geography impacts everything. If you dont have water it would be hard to grow crops. Geography decides what goods you will sell, how easy it is to get food and if you are a hunter or farmer. Mountains And Basins- They cut the rock (mountains) and to make roads so the people can get places.
Gulf Coastal Region- They build sea walls along the coast to prevent from major flooding.
Great Plains- People plant plants/crops which add more oxygen to the air.
North Central Plains- They build oil pumps. How Do People Modify Their Environment? How Does The Movement Of People Affect An Area? The movement of people can affect many different things such as....
The economy. It can hurt an economy or it can cause it to regain what it needed to stay "healthy".
Cultures. It cause people to mix cultures and try out different types of culture.
Resources. If more people come into the region more resources are going to be used up. Examples-Fuel, coal, water, food, etc. What Impact Did European Exploration And Colonization Have On Texas? You might focus on the fact that the indigenous native population was eventually almost completely wiped out. A systematic construction of missions and presidios helped establish Spanish and Mexican development, but Indian wars made for slow expansion until Americans started coming to the area in large numbers.

Development of land resources attracted thousands of European and American settlers who were given free land to establish new communities on. Still, it was a slow process, but the introduction of slavery, cotton farming, and cattle ranching changed the land forever.
Geographic differences were reflected primarily in the physical life style required for survival. Eastern woodlands tribes had more refined agricultural systems in cultivating crops although hunting and gathering were still part of their life style. Plains tribes relied more on hunting due to poorer growing conditions although some agriculture was possible.
Management of forestry was ahead of its time in woodlands areas. Plains tribes were more nomadic due to game pursuit whereas eastern woodlands tribes moved when resources began to dwindle in a certain area and the land needed a rest.
Exceptions to these general rules are notable in the Pueblo related tribes, viz., Hopi who were able to subsist on well managed corn, squash and bean agriculture without access to any appreciable amount of game.
Religious beliefs were affected by the geography from the standpoint of rituals and ceremonies specific to the food source attainment for the climatic and topographical area. Yet native American spirituality is still very similar on the North American continent as is the governmental structure of Elders, Chiefs, sub-chiefs including women in many tribes.
Shelter and clothing obviously was effected by the climate especially in winter and in colder regions. How Are Geographic Differences Reflected In Native American Cultures? www.blurtit.com
