We live very close to the Great Plains, and we know that it can get cold here, But it can also get very hot. But when the Native Americans were here it could get cold. If you were somehow went back in time with normal winter stuff, we would just say it feels like a normal winter. WRONG, for the native Americans they didn't have a Kohl's or Old Navy, they had to hunt for their survival. The men were out almost all day while the women would make food and clothing. That may seem like a civilized family, but in the winter they didn't have to worry about food, they had to worry about the weather. In the summers it was very warm but in the winter it was freezing. This effected the farm land because plants cant grow in the winter so the don't have food but in the summer they can grow becuase its not cold.
Food was and still is something that we need to survive. The native Americans in the great plains ate lots of food such as bufalo, ox, deer, and turkey. For plants they ate corn and soybeans. They ate that because their environment was just open land with some forests. So they had lots of room to farm and animals were everywhere
The Native Americans made the men go and hunt and the women stay at home and make the cloths. This was very important because it feels like a more civilized family
