Hey /his/torians. I got to wondering the other day about which Native American tribe I would want to be in if I had to chose, but my knowledge of Native American history is quite limited. What would you guys say was the "best" tribe to live in between the 1700s and 1800s and why? I'm asking in terms of cool culture/traditions, strength, resources, etc.

Iroquis, I liked them in Civ V and in EU4. If including South America, probably the Caribs or Muiscas

Th Pacific West coast Indians look like they had comfy lives. Also, being away from large American cities would be a good idea at the time period. Also, being on the future Canadian side of the border seems like it would be safer from Genocide. Maybe the Chinook Indians?

It's like you don't want to be hardcore

>The younger men generally underwent torture to demonstrate their bravery. Long wooden skewers were pushed through cuts in the skin on their backs or chests, and they were hung by ropes from beams. Their bodies were weighted down with buffalo skulls hung from other skewers thrust into their thighs and calves. The torment was extreme, but crying out was a sign of cowardice, and those best able to stand the pain became Mandan leaders.

>The purpose of the ceremony was to reaffirm the bond between the people and the natural world and to unify the Mandans through a ritual of suffering and bloodshed. The Okipa had been performed for hundreds of years when the artist George Catlin witnessed the ceremony in 1832

This, basically. Join the Coast Salish, not much warfare and all the salmon you can eat.

>"We will dance when our laws command us to dance, we will feast when our hearts desire to feast. Do we ask the white man, 'Do as the Indian does'? No, we do not. Why, then, will you ask us, 'Do as the white man does'? It is a strict law that bids us to dance. It is a strict law that bids us to distribute our property among our friends and neighbors. It is a good law. Let the white man observe his law; we shall observe ours. And now, if you are come to forbid us to dance, begone; if not, you will be welcome to us."

If you ain't gonna dance and feast get out niggas
