Life of the people.
The Paleo was the first Native American cultural group in North America. The Paleo people were Nomadic which means they followed their food and had no defined region to call their permanent home. Because the ground was hard from the ice and snow these people did not rely on crops, instead they hunted the animals living during that time like ammoth, deer, and large sloths.
#2 ARCHAIC PERIOD
The Archaic people came to rely on smaller animals like deer, turkey, and rabbit. As North was getting warmer the ice began to melt allowing the Archaic people to off berries and other plants. The Archaic people were hunters and gatherers which meant that they hunted dear and turkey and gathered plants to eat.
#3 WOODLAND PERIOD
The woodland people developed Horticulture. Horticulture is the process of growing crops for food. They grew wild greens and squash in rows and harvested them later. To improve the accuracy of hunting animals they developed the bow and arrow. They also improved pottery.
#4 MISSISSIPPIAN PERIOD
Learning from their ancestors the Mississippian people used agriculture skills to grow maize, beans, pumpkin and tobacco. They planted these crops on hills and even planted their crops in different locations each year to make sure the soil was fertile.
Hernando Desoto came to to speak and help the people out.
