The Paleo Native Culture was between 10,000 B.C to 8,000 B.C. The Paleo culture is the earliest known prehistoric culture. This was the most nomadic culture because the Paleo had to hunt and move around a lot for their food. Paleo comes from Greek and means "very old" or long ago." The Paleo invented the atlatl which was used as a hunting tool.
The Archaic Culture lasted from 8,000 B.C. to 5,000 B.C.This culture invented pottery and had 3 distinct time spans:Early,Middle, and late. The early culture mostly hunted large game and moved each season. The middle time span lasted from 5,000 B.C to 4,000 B.C. In this span, a lot of small groups formed together to create camps. The late time span lasted from 4,000 B.C to 1,000 B.C and this is when horticulture began.
The Woodland Culture lasted from 1,000 B.C to 1,000 A.D. They were the 1st to develop tribes and the bow and arrow. In this time period, elaborate religious ceremonies were developed. Also, the 1st corn crop was made.Native's in this time period grew squash, wild greens, and sunflowers.For them to get food, they fished, hunted,and gathered nuts and berries.
The Mississippian Culture was from 700 A.D. to 1600 A.D and is known as the least nomadic culture.They didn't need to move around a lot because they grew crops like corn.The native's of this culture believed the bones of their ancestors gave them strength and wisdom.This Native culture is considered to be the highest prehistoric civilization in Ga. They often painted their bodies as well as wore jewelry and head dresses. About 1600 A.D. the Mississippian's left the villages without a trace leaving everyone today wondering what happened to them.
The Muskogee were descendents of the Mississippians. In 1832, the U.S. and Creek agreed on a removal treaty to move the Creek from the Southeastern area of the U.S. From this point, the Muskogee would settle in new Indian territory called Oklahoma.The American Civil War damaged 3.2 million acres of Muskogee land.The reconstruction treaty of 1866 made Muskogee give up the land.
In the 1800s, the Cherokee were forced into Oklahoma. They had to walk along the Trail of Tears, Trail of Tears was the Cherokee name for what American's called the Indian Removal.The Cherokee settled in villages along rivers.The Cherokee men wore leggings.There are some sacred things to Cherokee. 2 numbers are sacred to the Cherokee.Four is one number because it represents 4 primary directions. 7 is the most sacred number because it represents 7 directions:north,south,east,west,above,below, and "here in the center."
Georgia, the 13th Colony
The reason early colonists settled in Georgia was because it was colonized to be a rare safe haven for people trying to work off their debt. James Oglethorpe founded Ga because he had a friend that was put in prison for not paying his debt and his friend died in prison of smallpox. He wanted to found Ga to get debtors out of prison and better their lives. It was located under South Carolina in the most southern part of the 13 colonies. King George of England or the Old World gave James permisiion to settle this new colony.
Georgia didn't really have any type of government when it was established in 1732. The charter James O. signed stated that all trustees couldn't hold office, but said that colonists had the same rights as British citizens. Also, a Proprietary colony gets land given to them by the king while a Royal colony is under direct control of the England monarch.
