Transcript of Northeastern Woodlands

Northeastern Woodlands
* they grew corn, beans, squash, tobacco
* the algonquin people hunted and farmed, so that they would have energy to live
* they did not waste any part of the animal's body and each part had a purpose
* the people hunted deer, raccoons, bears, squirrels, beavers, moose, seals, caribou and whales
* they fished trout, sturgeon, pickerel, turtles and crabs
* they preserved foods by drying them in the sun or smoking them over the fire so that they would not spoil
* they believed in a great spirit named Manitou
* the people believed that all things came from the creator and were related in the Sacred Circle of Life
* they respected everything and believed that they were connected to all living things
* they thought of the future and the next generations and it helped ensure that the northeastern peoples lived in balance with nature
* the peoples had feasts and ceremonies to honour special occasions throughout the year
* face paint was an important part in these ceremonies and was used to express feelings in the colours that were used
* they lived in longhouses which were permanent homes so they didn't have to use any more materials and waste
* they used long poles of wood and bark for covering and didn't waste the wood after they peeled off the bark
* the northeastern woodland peoples lived in wigwams as well and they took the hide with them to other campsites and therefore they didn't have to waste
* for wigwams they would use thin trees for the frame
and bark or woven mats for the covering
* clothing were made out of fur, hide, bird & fish skin, plants & they wore moccasins, leather kilts, breech cloths, leather belts, sashes, leggings, winter shirts, deerskin dresses, robes, mittens, hats, coats, & skirts to keep warm and not freeze to death
* they wore moccasins to protect their feet from blisters, bunions & scrapes from the ground
* for transportation, the peoples used canoes for bringing people places and for trading goods to get more equipment to aid in surviving

* in the winter, the northeastern peoples used toboggans and snowshoes so they could catch animals faster so they can eat
By: William, Maria, Devin and Angelika
* the northeastern woodlands used bows, arrows, lances, traps, snares, nets, arrowheads, spears & knives for defense, as well as to obtain their food
* nets and spears were meant to pierce the fishes & the rest of the weapons were to either stab/trap animals or defend themselves against warring tribes
* tools were made mostly out of wood, stone, & animal parts, & they used torches and stone axes as tools, therefore making life easier
* the axes were for stripping bark, cleaning fields & removing fat from hides
* when using the animals, they made sure no part of it went to waste and had a purpose for each part
