Location has always played a key role in shaping the identity of local communities. Evidence of this can be seen in the way that prehistoric peoples lived. The abundance of natural resources and unique geographical features of an area determined what materials people used to build houses, what foods they ate, how they dressed, what arts and crafts they developed, and how they organized themselves into larger communities. As you review cultural differences among indigenous peoples in North America, think about influences that have shaped these same things in your community.
