This research is based on our interest in letting people know about the hard struggle the Native Americans faced when the first colonists arrived in the United States of America. According to the American Encyclopedia, in the United States there are about 87 tribes, and we have chosen only a representative group of these tribes from the Eastern Woodlands: the Cherokees, Chickasaws, Seminoles, and Shawnees in order to study their past and present reality. First, we describe aspects about the Natives´ way of life, such as food, clothing, housing, as well as their customs and religion. American Indians were mainly farmers and hunters who honored and respected the mother land because everything around them depended on her. Legends played an important role in their lives since they were the means of teaching and learning from generation to generation. Second, we explain their efforts to defend their ancestor heritage when the white men forced them out of their home. For that reason, brave leaders fought to protect their rights. However, they were relocated to the distant lands where they survive and preserve their culture. Then we mention the white influence upon Native Americans which include the drastic manner the Indian children were introduced into boarding schools, the new religion, and the new style of life that they adopted. Finally, we explain the current situation that Native Americans are facing on reservations, and also the Natives´ contributions to American life with the purpose of highlighting and recognizing their achievements at the present time
