Ice age animals?

Hello, this is probably a stupid question, but my curiosity is acting up again. I was watching some documentary on animals that lived in North America way back in the Ice Age. So I got to thinking about the people who shared the area with ginormous bears, enormous sloths (who would have thought a giant sloth would exist?), mammoths, saber toothed tigers and all these impressive critters. Are those times just way, way too long ago to remember, or are there still stories about those animals? Hopefully that's not a religious/sensitive type of question - apologies in advance if it is!

Thanks for the replies! I suppose having the bones around would make a difference...otherwise it was a long, long time ago.

This is SO interesting!! Of course these stories were probably lost over the last several thousand years.

However, there are discoveries being made all the time. I was trying to make it to a talk the other night put on by one of the researchers at the LaPrelle Mammoth Site in WY, where they made some exciting discoveries, including the oldest bead in the area...like 10,000 years + , the oldest bone needle found, and many tools that showed that Natives feasted on these great beasts back then.

Just think of how innovative Natives had to be back in the Ice age, not only to hunt the mammoths and other megafauna, but to survive against the giant bears, wolves, sabertooths, etc... that were lurking around.

I heard a story in Alaska about how they hunted the giant bears that lived back in the day...using the beasts own weight to impale itself...but I don't know if it was a "recent" giant bear, or an ice age one.

This is one of my FAVORITE subjects, but there's not a lot about it online. :\

My tribe has words for the mammoth, sabre tooth tiger and a big white bear we assume is a polar bear. All these words are in a an ancient language that is no longer used and took place before we migrated south from what is now Canada.

Wow, WhoMe!! That is so interesting! Could you share those words? I would like to see if there are some similar words in Shoshone.

Haha xTekno, I think the Scrat legend is on a need to know basis only!

That is so cool that there are still old words in some languages. There had to be some great campfire stories. Like fishing stories but way better. That mammoth was sooooo big!! And it gets better with every telling...People would have had to be pretty darn resilient I think, going out and finding food without becoming food themselves!

Actually I was reading more, and the Clovis spear point that is over 11,000 years old was found embedded IN a mammoth fossil which is so amazing. Maybe a friend of your beadmaker, Wyo Rose! Kind of around the same time.

They aren't. Our language is an isolate language and much different from Shoshone/Comanche/Paiute. I have only heard them spoken once from an elder that has since made his journey.
