North 'Merican Natives

By Elliot, the king of Sargohna (it *totally* exists)

Anasazi Swagger

From 500 to 1200 AD, these Pueblo ancestors, living in Chaco Canyon, were especially handy and constructive! They built elaborate dams, dug trenches and hollowed out spaces for canals so they could trap rain from the tops of mesa and channel it to various gardens on their canyon's floor. They had beautifully fancy multi-story homes and dwellings consisting of adobe and stone like materials, built and constructed around the edges of large cliffs or plazas. The center of their architectural masterpiece was the Pueblo Bonito, proudly possessing a huge complex of more than 1,000 people and many roads for trading networks. On a more aesthetic note, their craftsmen created turquoise jewelry, woven baskets, and pottery; they helped to influenced art and construction style of the more modern groups such as the Hopi and Zuni. Alas, their times of surviving and thriving probably collapsed when several droughts forced them to leave their original territory - for good.

Awesome Adena

Also known the Eastern Woodlands people, these sly dawgs settled down originally in Ohio Valley in 700 BC. They proved to be self-sufficient, growing squash, sunflowers, gourds and barley, among other things. Their people produced beautiful copper jewelry and excellent pottery while alive, but were covered in mounds of dirt and rugged log structures after becoming deceased.

Totally "Hip" Hopewell

These Ohio roamers shared many traits and characteristics with the Adena, despite arriving 400 years after them. For example, they also built colossal burial mounds as large as 40 feet high and 100 feet wide. As evidenced by many artifacts and exchange remanence, they appeared to have a very large and developed trade network.

Mississipian Magic

One of the later North American natives, the Mississippians grew many crops that caused swells in their population. This called for more land, which resulted in multiple cities with up to 10,000 citizens, the largest of these being Cahokia. In the center of Cahokia, there was a massive burial mound - 100 feet high and more than 14 acres across... larger than the Great Pyramid in Egypt! Circling this massive resting place were 120 smaller burial hills.
