Activities and Traditions

Men and boys very year would come together and hunt trapped fresh meat [mostly moose, deer, and elk]. Olden women wove fish nets, watched the young children, and sewed clothes for the men generally because the men were in charge of food and anything that wasn't staying at home for long [though they loved their families]. But that wasn't the only thing that women did, they also dried meat over the fire and cooked. While the children played in the snow.
