Conversely, the bow and arrow, which has become the hallmark of Native people was probably introduced by Pre-Dorset groups prior to the Woodland Period (200 B.C. - A.D. 1750), when this weapon became prevalent throughout the continent. The coastal location of many of the sites suggests that boats were used. At Churchill, the Seahorse Gully Site, which represents the largest excavated Pre-Dorset occupation in Manitoba was located a rocky archipelago in the ancient Tyrrell Sea in the present Hudson Bay region. Summer access to this site would have required water craft, although faunal remains suggest a late winter camp (Meyer
A beaver dam can be very large and can contain thousands of pieces of wood cut by the beaver. Beavers even cut down small trees to eat the bark, leaves and twigs. Because beavers are members of the rodent family, they have four incisor teeth in the front of their mouths that never stop growing, so beavers must continuously chew on wood to keep their teeth
Map Rainbow Trout Range Fast Facts Type: Fish Diet: Carnivore Average life span in the wild: 4 to 6 years Size: 20 to 30 in (51 to 76 cm) Weight: 8 lbs (3.6 kg) Group name: Hover Did you know? The largest rainbow trout on record weighed 57 lbs (25.8 kg) and was estimated to be 11 years old. Size relative to a tea cup: The sperm of rainbow trout contains protamine, which counters the anticoagulant heparin. Protamine was originally isolated from fish sperm, but is now produced synthetically. The rainbow trout is native only to the rivers and lakes of North America, west of the Rocky Mountains, but its value as a hard-fighting game fish and tasty meal has led to its introduction throughout the world.

They knew the spirits were normally invisible, but they assumed they could transform into forms humans could see. Kwakiutl men went fishing for food, and hunted. The women gathered Clams, Shellfish, Seaweed, Berries, and Roots. Kwakiutl children played, helped out around the house and went to school, like all other children. They had huge Cedar forests near their houses.
Another difference between the Coppermine Eskimos from others is the fact that women hunt Caribou, and are often better hunters than their male counter parts. It is unclear if this role has ties to their ancient past or since the introduction of guns that caused women to be able to hunt. Jenness makes no mention of women hunting with bows and arrows. Icehouses daughter Jennie when traveling to see Eskimos at Cape Krusenstern, it is unclear if these are coppermine Eskimos or not Jenness doesn’t say, shot a duck. Women and children both participate in the frightening, and coerostion of caribou into firing range of the men.
June 25, 1805 – The journey is becoming very hard. We take frequent breaks, but no one is complaining. Captain Lewis brought out a boat frame that we attempted to build using elk and buffalo hide. It failed. We made dugout canoes from logs.
The Red River Métis, along with many other Prairie-Plains groups, had a relied heavily upon the buffalo as a means for food and other products. There were two main hunts every year; one in the spring and one in the fall. The Métis had to travel a distance from their Red river settlements in order to find the buffalo herds to hunt (DeMallie, 2001). “Men, women and children all went along on the hunts, because they needed as many people as possible to transport all of the buffalo hides and meat back home” (Canada’s First Peoples, 2007). The entire Métis community took part in these hunts.
As he patted it began to spread beneath his hand, and out around him, until Tule Lake was completely surrounded by earth and he was left there standing on an island. He drew back some earth to make mountains and used his fingernails to cut grooves in to sides. This allowed the rivers to flow threw them and into lakes. Kumokums drew trees and plants out of the earth, and he put birds in the air, fish in the water, and animals on the land. He shaped and decorated the world.
