    Communal Hunting
      US - Northeast
    Trapping in the conventional sense is often associated with the actual tool used in the capture of game. In this paper it is meant as the method in which land is modified or utilized for the purpose of trapping game in a contained area where butchering can take place. One advantage of this type of hunting strategy over individual attempts is that it is more energy-efficient, demanding less energy expenditure per individual in the hunting process.
      US - Northeast
    In the Arvilla mounds of North Dakota, archaeologist have discovered some interesting artifacts. They include a copper ornament, a spear or knife and a copper awl (see image at the right). The Arvilla mounds are considered part of a burial mound site, and the presence of these copper artifacts is not surprising to archaeologists.
    Effigy Moundbuilding
      US - Southeast
    The effigy-mound culture centers in Wisconsin, particularly in the southern half of the state and extends into contiguous southeastern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, and northern Illinois. The effigy mounds are constructed in the forms of animals such as bear, deer, panther, wolf, fox, buffalo and turtle; and also in the images of birds such as eagles, swallows and geese.
      US - Northeast
    Wild rice grows as tall reeds 8 to 12 foot in flowing water 3 to 8 foot deep in what is now Wisconsin, Minnesota and marshes north of the great lakes. There are thousands of different varieties, each growing in its own particular niche of depth, temperature, mud and water quality.
    Spear Fishing
      US - Northeast
    Fish were a major source of meat for Native Americans all year round. One way that the Native Americans caught fish was with spears. Spear fishing was considered a mans job while fishing with a hook and string was usually a woman's job. Spear fishing was usually done in the winter or spring time.
    Wood Working
      US - Northeast
    Wood is naturally very susceptible to decay. Little wood remains from ancient sites, so much of the information given here is common sense, theory or taken from ethnographies. It seems that most of the wood that still exists in ancient archeological sites are found either in garbage pits or as the bottom remains of posts driven deep into the ground. Posts also left impressions in the soil after they decayed. Digging sticks were undoubtedly used, and impressions of bark as coverings for buildings and pits.
