The Woodlands Culture 

Many people don't differentiate between different native cultures. The east cost of this continent has 3 cultures.

In the very north it's the Arctic culture which two types of Inuit, also called Inupiaq, The far north Inuit who live of seal hunting and have igloos and the Inuit below them who are not used to that kind of life and fish and collect clams and hunt caribou. When these Inuit would be relocated further North by the government they had to learn how to adapt to the far North. The Europeans were ignorant of the two cultures and many Inuit would die and many lives were ruined in that process.

South of that  is then there's the Sub-arctic and the Sub-arctic Native people's culture blends in with the Woodlands culture with elements of the Inuit culture. The third culture is the Woodlands culture and it is divided into  the North and South Woodlands culture as shown on the image on the left here. It is called Woodlands because it's is the place with many forests. West of these woodlands are the plains and the Plains culture begins.

The Woodlands culture is different from the Plains culture. Teepees and buffalo hunts are from the Plains culture. There are animals in the plains that live in the woodlands such as the  buffalo. There are also many exchanges between the people of both cultures but the two cultures are distinct.
