North American Indians: Virtual Programs & Digital Resources

Our virtual resources provide teachers and students with the opportunity to enrich their perspectives on many of the traditions, material culture, and belief systems of various North American Indian tribes.

Video Resources
Compare & Contrast Tour 

In this series of five videos, we’ll discuss the resources Native Americans used to survive in their environments. Resources are things that are available for someone to use in daily life. Native Americans in different parts of the country had different resources available to them, which meant each region developed different customs, lifeways, and homes in which to survive in their respective climates.
