Wendat or Huron People
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     One of the forest tribes was a great people. They called themselves the Wendat, but others called them the Huron. They lived on land that is now part of Canada. It was not a large area, but the Wendat were happy there.
 
2     In the spring, the people tapped the maple trees for sap. They boiled it down to make maple syrup and maple sugar. In the summer, the people of the villages grew corn, squash, pumpkins, and beans. They would also pick wild fruits and nuts.
 
3     In the fall, the men fished using traps. They also hunted deer. They would chase them over cliffs or scare them into corrals to kill them. In winter they hunted many animals for food and for their furs.
 
4     The Wendat knew how to make canoes from birch bark. With these boats, they could travel up and down rivers and lakes. They could carry fish or things to be traded.
 
5     Furs and animal skins were needed by the Wendat. Their clothes and moccasins were made of deer skins. The people liked to paint patterns on their clothes. They also liked to add fur trims to their clothes.
