There are extreme differences in cultures among Native Americans, and some among the Amish. However, the former generally did not even start to see themselves as one group of people until Europeans came.

Yup. "Native Americans" encompass enough things some wouldn't even have been aware of each other. I don't think the Zuni had any connection or even knowledge of the Cherokee's existence until maybe the eighteenth or nineteenth century. The Iroquois and the Huron/Wyandotte were enemies, mostly, as were other tribes to each other.

What aspect of their lifestyle would be hindered by harsh climates.
Actually, Manitoba's climate is not much harsher than Denver's. The average first frost is a little earlier in Man. Manitoba gets more rainfall, I believe. The Colorado mountains are much harsher than any of the above.
