I will give you 5 corn for 10 seeds
I think I could make a deal for that much corn.
The region where the Eastern Woodlands people lived was heavily wooded, and tribes practiced a technique known as slash-and-burn agriculture.
Over a series of days the woodland people would pray after gathering the food they grew.
This shows how the people of the woodlands traded with another tribe in the same area.
Women planted and harvested the crops. They also cooked, cared for the children, and made baskets, clothes, and other goods.
Men cleared the land, constructed buildings, hunted, served as warriors, and engaged in trade.
Agriculture was so important to these groups that one of their religious ceremonies was a Green Corn festival, which was held each summer as the corn began to ripen.
