kinda useless really.if they needed it...they would have it. the spanish had the wheel and Indians saw it. but, i don't think they said...OMG..i need to get me one of those. i think the terrain was too dense. now...if ya think about it...for a nomad..its just more junk to haul. think about rivers and rocky terrain. if your gonna drag sumthin..make it light.the skids were the tee pee poles. if you didnt need it...don't drag it. and also no beasts of burden. so its drag it or leave it. and they move fast to follow heards so quick movement was survival. when you go on a hikeing trip do you use a backpack or pull a wagon? yea ya can get more in a wagon but....then ya got to pull it wheels and all. they had canoe's kyaks and harpoons and i guess for the Cherokee who were farmers they probably had wheel barrows but who can say for shure. they werent stupid so i guess if it was something they needed they would make it. anyway its not like they weren't successful.they lasted 10,000 years or more till the europeans showed up.

American Indians did not use the wheel, even in the simplest of applications. As much as they have been unfairly mischaracterized and vilfied in early 20th century, they've been overly romanticized in the last quarter century or so. For the most part, they were simply a primitive people -- a reality that sometimes does not fit a politically correct "desired" perception.
