The First Americans Asia / Ice Age / Bering Strait / bridge / Paleoindians / hunters and gatherers / migrations / Native Americans / Iroquois / longhouses

A Native American tepee The first Americans arrived from Asia more than 20,000 years ago during the Ice Age. At that time, the Bering Strait was a land bridge between Asia and Alaska. The first humans to arrive in the Americas came across this bridge in search of food. These people are often called the Paleoindians. They were hunters and gatherers who followed large animals such as giant bison, moose and caribou. These migrations lasted until the end of the Ice Age. Before long, the now Native Americans had settled large areas of both American continents and their way of life had changed to suit their new environment. People of the northeastern woodlands, called the Iroquois, built 'longhouses', developed agriculture and hunted game such as deer and rabbit. The Plains Indians, who lived in the vast prairies known as the Great Plains, followed the migration of bison and lived in tepees. In the Southwest, the Hopi, possibly the oldest established people in North America, lived in terraced houses made of stone, and created a complex system of desert agriculture. Native American civilization and culture continues to influence American life today.
