FIRST AMERICANS Who were the First Americans? It is believed that the first human beings in America came from Asia. Thousands of years ago, a bridge of land connected Asia and North America. The first Americans crossed the bridge of land from Asia to North America. The first Americans depended upon their environment for their food, clothing, and shelter. The Inuit who lived in Alaska depended upon the seal and the caribou for food, clothing, and fuel. Shelters called igloos were built from blocks of snow. The Indians of the Pacific Northwest depended upon the water and the forests for their basic needs. Salmon was a fish important to the Indians of the Pacific Northwest. The Indians of the Pacific Northwest made their plank houses from wood. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
