    All humans live in diverse climates. It's not like all the indigenous in the Americas were one society. They arrived across the land bridge at very different points in history and as identifiable groups they developed their own unique cultures, some of which was based on where they settled. Even just within what is now the US there are many cultural differences between different Native nations and some of that had to do with their environment. What the tribes of upstate New York needed to do to survive wasn't the same as how those in the deserts of the southwest lived.

    The USA has a very diverse climate. The Great Plains is much drier than the forests of the Appalachian Mountains. The desert Southwest is a lot more arid than the swamps of Louisiana and Florida. The climate in the upper Midwest is a lot different than the climate of sunny California. There is not enough food for all the people if they live in a small area. As population expands, people migrate to find new areas where they can find food. It has happened to all populations. The Chinese for example had to migrate south the SE Asia after inventing agriculture and the population boomed. The Mideastern farmers had to migrate to Europe and North Africa after inventing agriculture.
