About My LifeHi, my name is Chepi. It is the year 1623. Im part
of the Zuni Tribe. My village or pueblo, as it is called, in the
Zuni language is very large. My tribe has been thriving for over
4000 years and has grown very big. This pretty much my every day
About My LifeHave you ever been outside on a hot summer day? You
have never been truly hot then. For me most days it is 90 degrees!!
Today I am really glad that I have my manta( white knee length
cotton dress). My brother is upset because he has to go out to work
in only a short kilt, talk about sweaty. One day I hope it will be
About My LifeToday we go out and harvest. YEEP!!! In my tribe we
have meals of deer, antelope, corn, beans, squash, small game,
nuts, fruit, herbs, and a variety of corn bread and soups. That
means a lot of cooking and gathering. Wish me luck!
About My LifeToday is the winter solstice which means party
time!! My tribe has three main gods known as Earth Sun Father,
Mother, and Moonlight Giving Mother. My tribe celebrates the
festival of Shakalako today which is dedicated to those gods. You
put your left hand in, you put your left hand out
About My LifeToday we go to look for buffalo! In my tribe we
have many relationships with buffalo. Even though we eat them we
treat them as if they are animal gods. I wish there was a way to
get what we need from the buffalo and not have to kill it at all.
I live in Colorado whereas my grandmother lives in New Mexico.
It takes a very long time to get to her for the family reunion.
There are quite a few plateaus here. We build houses calls pueblos
into the plateaus.
GeographyWhere I live there is a decent amount of grass and corn
and beans and squash plants. That is our main source of vegetables.
Sometimes we are able to grow sugar snap peas!
GeographyIn my tribal region we mostly have buffaloes and an
assortment of small game for animals. Sometimes you catch sight of
birds. One time I saw a baby bird and it was so adorable! It also
tasted really good.
GeographyRight now it is summer time which means time to harvest
the crops and plant new ones!!!!! It also means we get to have a
feast in honor of our crops.
Climate and WeatherTo me we have excellent weather. Most of the
time it is hot and sunny but every once in a while it rains. I love
to jump in the pond after it rains because there is more water. The
only bad part is a lot of people use the water for cooking and
Climate and WeatherThose times are my most favorite because that
means no work and playtime. Tag, your it!
Climate and WeatherFor my tribes plants to survive it means that
we have to water the plants twice every day or else they will
wither up and die. Also we have to put up a kind of tent to keep
the crops from tearing or getting holes in a storm.
20 years laterNow that everything is more modernized I dont know
If I like it. I'm not saying that I hate it, Im just saying its
unusual. A lot of people that are left in my tribe have these
things called covered wagons. It all is so strange.
20 years laterSome of these new ways I am fond of and if I came
up with this idea it would have definitely helped my village. Like
the covered wagons are good for transporting things to trade
instead of on foot.
20 years laterI wish I could have spent more time enjoying my
life instead of wishing work time would go quicker. I miss the old
times when my mother and I would have girl time while washing
ReflectionI think that on this project I would get an A because
I think that I included all of the information that I needed. The
hardest part of this project was finding the information about Zuni
Indians because they are not really a well known tribe. The easiest
part was the typing all the information.ReflectionThe most annoying
part of this project is when Mr. Barber told me to put different
topics on different pages. It took so long to do that!!!!! I would
like to do this project again but on different Indians.
