Baking Cornbread
  • This picture shows a Native American women
    baking cornbread. She heats a rock in the fire,
    then places the wet cornbread on the warm rock to
    bake. She will then be able to share the freshly
    baked cornbread with her other hungry tribe

Grinding Corn
  • Native Americans are using rocks to grind up
    corn. They place the whole dried kernels of corn
    in a shallow hole of the bigger rock and by
    applying pressure and turning a rock in their
    hand, it grinds the corn up into a fine dust.
    They use this corn flour to make other items to

Carrying Water
Two Indian women are using large pots to carry
water back to their homes. They use well worn
paths back and forth from the sources that they
need to survive such as animal living grounds and
bodies of water. These Native Americans live in
a heavily wooded area. They are probably located
in the northern territories

The 3 Sisters
This is a picture of the 3 sisters. Squash,
corn and beans were very popular to the Native
Americans because they were a very hearty plant
and grew easily in many different types of
climates. These types of vegetables were shared
with the early settlers and helped to greatly
enhance their daily nutritional intake.

California Indians Gathering Acorns
In California where trees are plentiful, Indians
appear gathering acorns. Although, Native
Americans could hunt, grow and harvest their own
food. At times, the land provided good and
useful food with no labor necessary other then to
gather at the natural harvesting time of year.

Gathering Mussels
  • Next to the coasts, many Native Americans ate
    food from the sea. During low tide, after the
    water pulls farther away from the shore, an
    Indian is pictured here gathering mussels. The
    Indians probably used sharp rocks to pry the
    shells open for a fresh seafood meal.

Gathering Berries
  • Berries were available for harvest three seasons
    of the year. Here, a Native American woman
    gathers berries off of a tree probably during
    early spring or fall. Indians probably enjoyed
    different berries such as strawberries,
    raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries, and
    possibly apples.

Digging for Roots
  • This is a picture taken of an Indian woman
    digging for roots. Roots were not just for
    eating by the Native Americans. They were also
    boiled to make tea. Certain roots were used for
    their medicinal value. They could be crushed and
    used to cure illness.

Deer Hunter
  • This Native American has killed a buck deer. He
    has used a bow and arrow as his weapon of choice.
    You can also see, that he has used camouflage
    while hunting by covering himself with a deer
    skin that he probably killed in the past.
    Indians were very skilled hunters.

Northwest Indians Fishing
  • Native Americans were skilled fisherman. As you
    can see they have built a type of chute for the
    fish to swim through. The Indians stand on the
    rocks and spear the fish as they swim by. The
    fish that get by will then swim back through the
    chute or get back into the river to continue to

Hunting Buffalo
  • This is a picture of Plains Indians on a hunting
    excursion. The Native Americans have camouflaged
    themselves with wolf furs. Hunting with bows and
    arrows, they are attempting to sneak up on a herd
    of buffalo. Buffalo was a main food source for
    the plains Indians but was hard to get until the
    Native Americans gain access to horses

In Canoe Hunting Moose
Northern Native Americans are seen here hunting a
bull moose. They have caught him in the water
and as he tries to swim to safety, other men are
rowing the canoe, while an Indian prepares to
spear him from above. This would be a good kill
for the Indians as this would provide for them in
many aspects. Natives used every part of the
animals they killed.

Mound Builders Gardening
  • A tribe of Mound Builder Indians is seen in this
    portrait gardening corn. Almost all Native
    American tribes grew a type of corn called maize.
    It was a hybrid type that was very hearty and
    could grow in the many different climates from
    around North America. As you can see people of
    all ages helping to finish the harvest.

Harvesting Wheat
You can tell by this picture, that the Indian
shown has had exposure to European settlers by
the way they are dressed. This Native American
is harvesting wheat which will be ground up and
used to make many different types of whole grain

Mound Builders Field
This is a picture of a Mound Builders field that
has been cultivated. It will now be able to be
planted with the next crop. It is important to
cultivate the land so that you can turn the soil
up. If the same soil is used year after year,
the crops will get progressively worse. Many
Indians also buried fish in the soil to be used
as a fertilizer for the plants.

Hoeing Corn
  • After Native Americans were exposed to the
    European settlers, they began using tools.
    Although they had tools before the settlers came,
    they were often made of animal bones. These new
    tools were made of wood and metal which were much
    more durable and held up longer. Here an Indian
    woman uses a hoe to get the weeds out of her corn

Note Virtual museums were first introduced by
educators at Keith Valley Middle School in
Horsham, Pennsylvania. This template was designed
by Dr. Christy Keeler based on one of the sample
virtual museums provided by the Keith Valley
staff at ISTEs NECC 2005. Contact Dr. Keeler for
