The Hopi Indians, which means good and peaceful, came from the Southwestern people called Pueblo.  They live in Northeast Arizona at the southern end of the Black Mesa.  A mesa is a small isolated flat-topped hill with three steep sides.  They live in pueblos that are made of stone and mud and stand several stories tall.  They grew corn, which they used in religious ceremonies.  They also grew beans, squash, melons, and fruit. When a child is born the family receives a special blanket and a near perfect ear of corn.

The Narragansett Indians are the descendants of people from the State of Rhode Island.  The first documented contact with these Indians took place in 1524 when Giovanni de Verrazano visited Narragansett Bay. The Tribe members were considered warriors within the region. The Narragansett sometimes offered protection to smaller tribes in the area. The tribal members had two homes; a winter home and a summer home. The winter home was a long house in which up to 20 families would live in. During the summer, the tribe would move to the shore and make ms or Wetus.

            The Penobscot are from what is now Canada and the Northeastern U.S., particularly Maine. The word "Penobscot" originates from a mispronunciation of their name "Penawapskewi." The tribe however, has adopted the name Penobscot Indian Nation. In 1973, the Penobscot tribe was one of the first Native American tribes to begin Gambling enterprises with the opening of Penobscot High Stakes Bingo which is located on the reservation.

Divine Right of Kings

The Divine Right is power given to a person said to be chosen by god to be King. It’s a political and religious way of one having complet power with no excuses. The “Divine Right” is passed to the kings decendents.  If the king has a daughter then they must get married to a person of noble blood and the husband gets the privalige of being king.   Its said that any attempt to overthrow the king or restrict their power is against the will of god.  A good example of divine right at its best is Ivan the 3rd.  He married Sophia Paleoiogue, also known as Zoe, daughter of Thomas Paleoigue.  Being married to Zoe gave Ivan the claim to the divine right which made him king and gave him absolute power.  Ivan the 3rd was also known as Ivan the Great.  The kings were ether “The Great” or “The Terrible” based on their actions while they are in power.  There have even been kings that would kill their own children for fear of being overthrown by their offspring.   Ivan the Great was also the longest ruling Russian king ever to have lived.

I like how the losers had to become human sacrifices and the winners got a feast. This game sounds very violent. It sounds weird to have to play a game with a human skull.
