Who were the first Native tribes in the Northeast of North America?

Before non-Natives arrived in North America, the woodlands of the Northeast were the home of some 50 tribes.

Anthropologists group most of these peoples as either Algonquian or Iroquoian. The tribes in each group were distant relatives of one another.

They also spoke similar languages and shared many of the same customs and ways.
