  • 7. Living Aboriginal people build houses near the water so they can be near the animals they hunt. Only few of those houses were permanent. As food supplies decreased or the water dried up,people moved in search of new supplies. The size of a bark house depends on how many people need to live in the house. The number of people needed to live in the house is usually between 6 and 25. Single men or family groups share 1 house. 5 Wednesday, February 4, 2009
