The climate of the northwest coast of the United States is cool andhumid. The coastal area has some hot days, but the temperatures aremostly mild and on the cool side all year.
The most common weapons of Northwest coast natives were spears (long "outdoor" and short "indoor" varieties), bows (short & simple, probably 35-45 lb. draw weight), double-ended daggers (pointy on both ends, made of wood, whalebone, or rare copper), "slave killers" (stone hand mauls with a 4-sided p…oint designed to penetrate skulls), and clubs (often made of wood, stone, or antler). They also had a special type of canoe paddle used in warfare, made of hardwood & carved with a point on the end that could be used as a weapon in a pinch. Later on, the natives traded with whites for iron knives & muskets. They also wore armor: For the head, they would hollow out a knot from a type of spruce wood that does not split & fashion it into a helmet. These helmets were tall, made with a small hollow space on top to give them a place to put their hair which they would coil into a bun. The helmets were usually carved to imitate the faces of animals or spirits. Over their faces they would wear wood that had been steam-bent to fit around the front & sides of their head, which they would hold up against the brim of the helmet by a mouth bit. They would see through a small gap between the helmet and face guard. Over their body they would wear thick bear or sea lion hide, or wood slats that were laced together into a kind of corset, or a leather tunic that had 3-4 layers of gravel that was attached with fish glue.

Having potlatchs (is like a party) where you give away your finest possessions and at the end you burn everything you have to show how wealthy you are. They did this to gain prestige and prestige meant a lot to them. They also made totem poles to represent something or someone. CORRECTION from M…arce Speake I am part Indian and have lived in Tacoma for forty years (I am 61), during which time I have been active with one of the local nations and done a lot of research on the local legends. Potlatches were held to distribute wealth in the community by chiefs and those who were wealthy. Yes, it was for prestige, but more to show generosity. Yes, it was like a party where gifts were given to all in attendance - but they were not burned. It would have defeated the purpose of distributing wealth! The practice was later outlawed by whites. Now something similar happens at pow-wows, and at memorial services - termed "giveaways." Totem poles were commissioned to put at the door post of the houses (sometimes a slave would be killed and buried in the bottom of the hole), and for a memorial for someone who has died. "Whites" talk about "low man on the totem pole," which is a misnomer - the character at the bottom of the pole is the most important one! PLEASE GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE POSTING! (MORE)
They ate berries, killer whales, Elk, bears, mountain sheep and salmon. Also, flying sheep and dinosaurs. But mudkipz are their favorite. They also ate tacos for ceremonial purposes.
The formation of coasts is also heavily influenced by their lithology. The harder the material the less likely it is to erode. Variants in the rock create different-shaped coastlines. Tides often determine the range over which sediment is deposited or eroded. Areas with high tidal ranges allow wave…s to reach farther up the shore, and areas with lower tidal ranges produce deposition at a smaller elevation interval. The tidal range is influenced by the size and shape of the coastline. Tides do not typically cause erosion by themselves; however, tidal bores can erode as the waves surge up river estuaries from the ocean. Waves erode coastline as they break on shore releasing their energy; the larger the wave the more energy it releases and the more sediment it moves. Coastlines with longer shores have more room for the waves to disperse their energy, while coasts with cliffs and short shore faces give little room for the wave energy to be dispersed. In these areas the wave energy breaking against the cliffs is higher, and air and water are compressed into cracks in the rock, forcing the rock apart, breaking it down. Sediment deposited by waves comes from eroded cliff faces and is moved along the coastline by the waves. (MORE)
