Transcript of The Woodland First Nations

The Woodland First Nations Introduction Principal Tribes Housing Who are the Woodland First Nations People? Clothing Clothes were made from pelts (animal skin with the hair or fur still on it) of animals they ate. They wore shirts, leggings and moccasins made of buckskin (animal skin without the fur or hair) during the winter. The women wore skirts woven out of wild grass and covered with furs. They wore leggings underneath. During the hot weather, men only wore a loincloth (a small piece of buckskin between their legs and tucked into a belt) and woman wore their grass dresses. Children wore nothing. The daily life, culture, tradition, and more about the Woodland First Nations..... The Woodland First Nations consisted of several tribes. They spoke languages belonging to the Algonquian Family. Ceremonies and Beliefs When someone in a Woodland tribe died, the tribe would hold a cry ceremony. The chief sang and danced around the fire. This ceremony lasted for five days. The day before it started, five knots were tied in a piece of milkweed. Every day of the ceremony they untied one knot.
Face paint was a big deal to Woodland Indians. They wore it to express feelings each color meant something: red meant life, black meant death or eternal grief and purple meant royalty and for special occasions. Before going to war, they painted themselves, performed magical rites and took special medicines. Several of the tribes performed many songs and rites. They used special equipment that they thought helped them talk to their gods. They also wore masks to cure diseases. The scary masks were supposed to scare the evil spirit out of the sick person.

hunters and gatherers. They hunted bear, moose and bison, and were effective fishermen. They also hunted beavers, raccoons, rabbits, Uses of Bark Pop Quiz The Woodland tribes lived in wigwams and
