have resulted to using English as their common dialect, the cultural identities of the people are
still eminent. The culture together with the land's resource endowment mainly characterizes the
economic activity of the inhabitants. Northwest Coast stretches from Atlantic seaboard to
Tennessee with many mountains and islands marking its landscape. In this account, the residents
of Northwest Coast have engaged themselves with different income earning activities among
them fishing, Forestry, and crop farming (Funari and Senatore 89). Among these economic,

forest resources available for the people, only a small proportion of these people depend on them
for livelihood and hence not maladaptive in the area. The existence and adaptive nature of the
forests are supported by the natural setting of the place since the ocean waters are available and
play a crucial part for their survival.
