    Answer:

    d) by the language they speak

    Explanation:

    Most of the Native American tribes are grouped based on their language, thus using the linguistics as a method for creating connections between the groups. The linguistic groups by which the Native American tribes have been divided (specifically in North America) are:

    – Algic; being the most dispersed of all, occupying the central and big portions of the eastern part of the continent.

    – Iroquoian; occupying areas of the eastern part of the continent.

    – Muskogan; being spoken in the southeastern part of what is now the United States.

    – Siouan; mostly being represented in the central Great Plains region, with small enclave in the eastern coast as well.

    – Uto-Aztecan; occupying the majority of the western and southwestern parts of the US, as well as small enclaves in Mexico.

    – Athabaskan; being represented in the southwestern part of the US and northernmost part of Mexico.

    – Salishan; a smaller linguistic group occupying the central western coastal region of the continent.

    – Eskimo-Aleut; dispersed along the northern coastline of the continent and southern Greenland.

    – Mayan; being spoken in the southern portions of Mexico.

    There are also other linguistic groups, but they have much less speakers and occupy much smaller territories.
