My tribe & region
Hi! My name is Hania. It means spirit
warrior.
I’m part of the Yakima (or Yakama) tribe.
We live along the Columbia and Yakima
Rivers.
Our Tribe population is around 1200 total.
My family and I live in the plateau region
near Yakima river.

(Terrain)
We live in Plateau region so we have rivers, forests,
mountains and canyons. We use canyons to hunt for
most of the time. one time rock fell from high
mountain and scared me for earthquake. My region
is prone to earthquakes.

(weather)
It’s so hot, I am thirsty need some water. Look, a
nice river with lots of water, let me get some water.
In winter I can’t even get to that river because of
cold and snow. Oh, I am so tired. Let me take my
afternoon nap under that big tree.

(weather impact)
We have a lots of food because we have 6 months of
growing season, and we save food for winter. My
favorite season is summer for hunting and fishing.
Journal Entry #3 Summer
(strategy)
We use canoes for fishing. We also use bow-arrows,
and trained dogs for hunting. I love my dog and he
stays with me on my hunting trips. My dog is a good
helper and hunter.
Reflection
My hunting dog helped me to hunt 2 additional elks
this summer! We have started getting horses from
Europe which are big help for travelling on hunting
trips. We have a lot of food for the winter (including
my four elk hunts) and so far I think we are going to
be fine. I have not seen any bad weather in months
so that is good.
Reflection
I had some trouble finding reliable resources but I
did good. I think I’m going to have a good grade
because I have included lots of information from my
research on Yakima Tribe. It was good learning
experience about Yakima Tribe. Now I know lots of
facts on how the Tribe lived and survived. Not to
mention, I really had fun making animations for this
presentation.
