Are people who move a lot in groups called settlers?
I don't know what else; I'm doing an report on native Americans and the Wyandotte culture. They move in big groups I don't know what that's called but I really need to know.
This might be a group of nomads.
A member of a people that travels from place to place to find fresh pasture for its animals and has no permanent home:
‘the withering of their grasslands forced the nomads of the Sahara to descend into the Nile valley’
Wyandotte people were forced to move due to conflict with other tribes (including the largest tribe of all, the US government.)
They eventually settled in one place, and formed a nation. So they were settlers in a sense.
However, to arrive there they migrated.
Although the word has a recent connotation equating it with refugee, or even farm worker,
a person that travels to a different country or place, often in order to find work
The word can also be used to refer to a type of seasonal behaviour, such as the what the Sioux Plains Indians engaged in,
They were a hunting people and traveled frequently in search of their main food source, the sacred American bison or buffalo.
...and the American Buffalo followed migratory feeding patterns.
You can also use Vagabond although the word is used mostly in a negative connotation.
a person who wanders from place to place without a home or job.
