ShelterThey built dome-shaped houses called wigwams. Men placed tree poles in the ground and bent them to make arches. Women then tied the poles together with long strips of tree bark.

FoodIn late March they move to maple groves to collect sap. They make candy, and sweet drinks out of the sap. In late spring people set up villages along lakes and rivers where fish were plentiful. Women and children gathered berries, fruit, and nuts. Cranberries were eaten fresh. Raspberries were made in to paste or a tasty pudding. They plant corn, beans, and squash in to gardens. The beginning of fall Chippewa families divided into small groups and moved to shallow lakes or streams to harvest wild rice. In the winter men trapped mink, otter, muskrat, rabbit, fox, and beaver. Larger animals such as deer, bear, moose, and wolves were hunted.
