A Guide to the American West
By April Adams
Why you should head West?
By heading West, you'll be able to get cheap (or even free!) land and a better way of life.
How could life be better in the West? Well, with life in the West you can expect a lot of freedom and there aren't as many rules to hold you back. There is religious freedom so everyone can worship as they like. If you are travelling there are even army units to protect you!
America - the land
The Great Plains
The Rocky Mountains and Plateaux region
- Lipan Apache
The Plains Indians
Family is very important to the Plains Indians, each member of the family plays an important role. For example the grandparents/parents are highly respected due to their wisdom which will be passed down through the generations. Life of the Plains Indians children is not bad, their parents treat them well and do not hurt them when punishing them.
What do you need?
- A variety of clothing
- You will obviously have a cart or wagon of some type for transport
Certain people think bad things of the Indians, but they respect our way of living so people should try and respect theirs.
