Visit this site for facts and information about the history of Georgia's Native Americans. During the early settlements of Spain exploring the south-eastern Americans were the Mississippian Indians who were known for their agriculture somewhat similar to the Cherokee and the Creek. The Mississippian Indians were one of the last known tribes to inhabit the east-coast of America before the explorations of Europe arrived. The Natives had been known for the man-made mounds the size of hills, where men were buried after death similar to what we have today as a belief of afterlife. The American Native Indians who lived in what is now the present state of Georgia led a Stone Age lifestyle - they only had stone tools and weapons, had never seen a horse and had no knowledge of the wheel. The main material used for the tools and weapons for the natives were made from sharpened stones from flint such as arrow heads for ranged hunting. The housing depended on the change of seasons such as during summer times, the housing would have no walls to keep a cool breeze during the night when days were hot and aired, while during winter, the houses were built around fire pits to keep warmth when nights grew cold.
