Wampanoag ChildrenThey do the same things any children do--play with each other, go to school and help around the house. In the past, Indian kids had more chores and less time to play, just like the early colonial children. But Wampanoag children did have cornhusk dolls and toys such as minature bows and arrows and hand-held ball games.
