During the Archaic period, basketry, bone tools, and finer stone tools appeared.
Archaic peoples also began to develop more specialized knowledge of their local environments and the animals and plants that lived there. Though they did not generally travel far beyond these familiar environments, American Indians during this period did begin to establish trade and migration routes that brought the native peoples of the Carolinas in contact with other bands and tribes.
Scholars suggest that small-scale agriculture began to develop among American Indians in the Southeast around b. During the early Woodland period, native peoples began to concentrate settlements near streams and rivers, where the rich soil allowed successful farming.
This Woodland tradition took root among Indians in the Carolina region.
Many Woodland people planted crops such as sunflowers, corn, pumpkins, squash, and beans and built permanent wooden homes. Nevertheless, Indians in the Woodland period still relied primarily on hunting, fishing, and gathering. Among the enormous variety of animal resources available, deer was a primary staple, providing food, clothing, blankets, and tools made of antler and bone.
Fishing methods included the use of hooks, spears sometimes poisonednets, traps, weirs, and dugout canoes. In most tribes, work was shared by men and women.
Indian housing typically consisted of lodges made of bark or thatch, at times raised off the ground. Some Indians, including the Cherokeealso built earthen winter homes without windows.
Homes were furnished with straw or cane mats, pottery, basketry, and wooden utensils. As family groups and larger bands formed around productive agricultural or hunting grounds, villages developed.European Exploration of the Americas is a unit designed for third grade students.
