  3. The Northeast Woodlands<br /> The Northeast woodlands is a quickly changing place. There are four seasons with wide temperature ranges. It can get below zero degrees during the winter, and above one hundred degrees in the summer. A large mountain range called the Madison Boulder and dropped them along the way. One of the Native American<br />Tribes that had to struggle with these hardships were the Algonquins.<br />2<br />This is the Algonquin Environment.<br />
  4. Algonquin Food<br /> Since there were so many lakes and rivers, Algonquin usually had a camp near <br />Water so they could fish and ice fish. In the spring the women and children<br />picked berries. They also planted crops such as corn, apples, potatoes, and<br />Squash. The men hunted. The hunted moose, deer and black bear. They also<br />Hunted and ate beaver and water birds. When they hunted moose they called<br /> it by blowing through a horn that imitated a mating call.<br />This is what the Algonquins eat.<br />3<br />
  5. Algonquin Clothes<br /> The Algonquin tribe mixed bear fat and soot into their hair to make it black and<br /> shiny. They believed that nice looking shoes showed respect to the earth<br />and bad shoe condition protects children from evil spirits. Men wore breechcloth<br />In the summer and leather robes in the winter. Women wore wraparound dresses.<br />Children wore nothing in the summer until they were ten. Everyone wore moccasins.<br />They made their clothes out of animal skins. They sewed their clothes with thread <br />made from tough animal flesh.<br />4<br />This is what the Algonquins wore<br />
  6. Algonquin Homes<br /> Algonquin native Americans built and lived in wigwams. The wigwams were made with <br /> birch bark and saplings. They used the saplings to make a frame then put the birch bark <br />on. Skins were used for household items and kids played with dolls and other wooden <br />Toys. They made sheets and baskets that were also made of birch bark. Their cradle<br /> boards were made out of birch bark too.<br />This is an Algonquin home.<br />5<br />
  7. Algonquin Travel<br /> The Algonquin traveled many different ways. They traveled by snowshoe and toboggan <br />During the winter, and built canoes to travel the waterways with during the summer.<br /> They made these canoes by first making a frame, then putting inside out birch bark on<br /> the frame. They used the canoes to fish as well. The toboggans carried their belongings<br /> while they walked ahead on snowshoes and pulled it behind them.<br />This is an Algonquin canoe.<br />6<br />
