The Algonquian Speaking Tribe
The Algonquian languages were spoken by the Northeast Woodlands and the Great Plains Indians. The Great Plains culture area extended across the prairies of central North America which was home to many tribes including the Crow, Cheyenne, Blackfoot and Comanche. The people of this massive area spoke a variety of languages including Siouan, Algonquian, Caddoan, Uto-Aztecan and Athabaskan. The vast variety of languages were due to introduction of the horse by the white settlers which made the hunting lifestyle very attractive to many nomadic tribes.
