The tradional song they sang soundedlike to me was amazing grace.They picked up modern trade and ways of education, some were even allowed to stay.They would have communtiy wide pow-wows wich helped carry on their own tradtions for generations. they began producing furs and other crafts as ways to make morey for their people.

they would have to try and blend in, but not lose themselve or their culture.. they might be standoffish at first then slowly adapt.. they begin learning how to read and write and communicate so they could survive..

the song they sang was amzing grace. they addapted by using modern educational systems and modern trading habits. they passed down traditions from generation to generation by performing these traditions at community wide events and pow-wow's. to make money they used their new trading habits and trading furs with white traders.

1. The song they sang was amazing grace.

They picked up on modern forms of trade and education. Some were even allowed to be citizens of the US.
The pow wows would be carrying the traditions from generation to generation. The arts and crafts of the people became a way to make money for them
