On a summers day nearly 1,000 years ago, a ship from Greenland arrived in Newfoundland, Canada Leif Eriksson, the captain and his crew liked the warm climate and they decided to stay. They called the region Vinland – the land of wine. The Skraelings, who were probably Native Canadians, came to fight the Scandinavians. The Scandinavians left the region and moved to another part of Newfoundland – LAmse aux Meadows – where they built houses and workshops. This was the first time that metal was made in the New World. We dont know when they left but with time, grass grew over their houses and workshops. In 1960, a Norwegian explorer – Helge Instad – found the village and many things which were made by Scandinavians. Today archaeologists are still discovering more about life here 1,000 years ago.
For over 10,000 years the Native Canadians people and the buffalo lived together in the pains of Alberta. The Blackfoot was one of the native Canadian tribes. They used the buffaloes for meat, clothes and for making tepees. They hunted the buffaloes by chasing them over high cliffs. About 150 years ago, a young Blackfoot wanted to watch the buffalo falling over the cliff so he stood in a small place inside the cliff. The pile of dead buffaloes became higher and higher. The young man couldnt move from his small space and he was killed. When the other men moved the buffaloes they found the young Blackfoot between the cliff and the buffaloes, with his head smashed in.
The South Nahanni River runs for 322 km. It has many high waterfalls and dangerous rapids. It is a river of legends. Nearly a hundred years ago many people came here to look for gold. It was a dangerous place. Bears and wolves live in the valleys and the rapids can carry people away in seconds. Many people died mysteriously when they were looking for gold in the river – some disappeared in the river mist. When other adventures found headless bodies in the river they called the area Deadman Valley and Headless Creek.
