Meadows of plains of the Midwest they hunt for a number of the American variety, having camels, mammoth and horse. with the desert regions of the southwest they hunted on smaller animals and gathered seeds. In the Arctic north, they do more hunt than gathering of seeds, fish and seals are abundant. The very beginning of established village life is in the southwest, somewhere by the 2nd millennium BC gourds, squash and corn (or maize) are cultivated. The Native Americans of the area came to learn how to grow their crops which they came to this knowledge from the more superior culture to the south, in Mexico
Some of the oldest entombment mounds in north America belong to the Adena ethnicity of the Ohio valley, the Hopewell tribes also followed the same culture as well.
