Transcript of The Kaska Tribe

Sub-Arctic and Arctic By: Kaylee Fike Food The Kaska tribe men hunted caribou, buffalo, mountain goat, bighorn sheep, and other small animals. The Kaska tribe females were gatherers. They gathered berries and a few other wild plant foods such as mushrooms and onions. Their food source varied by seasons because certain food grew at certain times. Clothing The members of the Kaska tribe wore sewn caribou skins. Both women men and children wore skin shirts (hooded in the winter), leggings, and moccasins in winter. Tribe members would also wear mittens. Clothing was sometimes decorated with dried and hardened moose stomach. The tribe members did not wear special clothes for special occasions or ceremonies. Shelter The members of the Kaska tribe lived in teepees, huts, or A-framed lodges. These were made of poles and brush. They were covered with sod, brush, or animal skin. These homes were permanent and were made to last season to season. Some tribe members lived in lean-tos in the summer. These were temporary homes.
