How are the American Indians of the Eastern Woodlands, Plains, and Southwest alike and different? These 9 full-color 8 x 11 posters help students to make these comparisons by highlighting American Indian facts for the Eastern Woodlands, Plains, and Southwest regions of our country. The posters highlight each region with carefully selected pictures that allow students to visualize and read what the region looked like, as well as the tribes (Powhatans, Lakota, and Pueblo) that lived there and their style of homes, means of transportation, and occupations.
