Since Kentucky initially served as a middle ground or a crossroads in which different groups met, it then started to foster a multicultural society. There were small groups of French explorers, Native Americans hunted on the grounds, Spanish explorers arrived from the South, and the Virginians and several other English colonists and the African Americans arrived as well. There was much evidence regarding how these cultures fused together and had peaceful interactiond since Indian villages started to look like those of the English. The Europeans and the Indians started to wear similar clothes. Both the Europeans and the Native Americans divided and grouped together differently, and so began trade and barter. These cultures also had certain differences, and this chapter examines how Kentucky started out as a diverse state.
