The Paleo-Indians migrated from Asia across the Bering Strait land bridge to North America because they were following their food source.
The Paleo-Indians use every part of the mammoth. They used the skins to make clothes and shelter. They used the bones and tusks to make tools.
I can't wait to trade this corn for some copper.
When the Earth began to warm, the Ice Age ended the the mammoths were not able to adapt to the heat and became extinct. As a result the Indians had to hunt smaller animals and gather food from plants.
Eventually, the Indians realized that they could plant the seeds from their food and became farmers. Agriculture allowed them to stay in one place and start their own civilization.
The Mississippians produced a surplus of corn that they used to barter for other goods such as tools and copper.
The Early Civilizations continued to grow and form and develop their own culture.
