Transcript of Eunice
The region that the Yakima lived in, is the Northwest. It lays between the Cascade and the Rocky Mountains. The natural resources are fish, apples, crops they planted, berries, and nuts.
The men fished, hunted, and sometimes went to war to protect their family. Like the women they also did storytelling, artwork, music, and made traditional medicine,
To fish they used spears, harpoons, gaffs ( hooks with handles), and caught them in nets or seines (small nets). The Yakima were also hunters. For hunting their principle was the bow and arrow.
Others used dogs or horses. Dogs to find the animals and horses to ride so that they can catch up and shoot them.
The women in the Yakima tribe gather plants, herbs, and did most of the child care , and cooking. They also did storytelling. artwork, music, and made traditional medicine.

Most Yakima speak English, but some elders speak their native language. Their language was very complicated filled with clicks and clucks that we do not use in English.
