History of the Native Americans

The tribes were set up when they were living inthe land that is now Connecicut. The most important new idea forthe Algonquin Indians was farming. They still hunted and gathered food to eat. They no longer had to travel alot for food but they had to travel alot sometimes. Some tribes all had parts, like keeping the fire going collecting berries, making jewlery, and going hunting.
