The Algonquian people relied heavily on hunting and fishing to gather food and materials, they were also very skilled at producing a wide variety of items. The Algonquian tribes built their houses and settlements in harmony with the environment, giving them an advantage over other native civilizations.
Who were Algonquian people?
Algonquian or Algonquin people were located in the dense forest regions of the valley of the Ottawa River and its tributaries in present-day Quebec and Ontario, Canada. They farmed, fished and hunted; made ornaments from copper and copper alloys, skins, berries and berries from the berry family (animals can ingest poisonous plants that are high in acid); built large villages to hold many people and huge amounts of animals for food; used stone tools and traps to catch other animals; created baskets from plant stalks; made artworks from medicinal plants or animal body parts including porcupine quills, reindeer antlers, and beaver teeth.
The Algonquians’ main food was fish. The Algonquians were skilled hunters and fishermen. They used spears and bows to hunt for games such as deer, bison, rabbits, and other small animals. They lived in large villages where everyone shared their food with everyone else. The Algonquians also made tools out of bone or shell which they used for everything from hunting to cooking. They also built small boats out of birch bark which they used to go hunting for animals in other parts of North America.
The Algonquin people lived in semi-subterranean structures that were made out of wood logs covered with earth or clay.

Hunting and fishing were Survival Skills
Hunting and fishing were two skills that were necessary for survival in the past. If a person could not hunt or fish, they would die. For example, if a person was lost in the woods and did not have any food or water, they would die. If someone didn’t know how to hunt and fish, they would starve.
The food that was available to early civilizations was very limited. Civilization relied heavily on hunting and fishing together with food. People would go out into the forest or ocean and try to find something edible. They would catch whatever animals they could find, whether it be fish or other wild creatures like rabbits, deer or even bears!
In addition to being able to provide food for themselves and their families, hunters also provided valuable resources such as clothing, shelter and other items that helped them survive in this harsh world.
They used many different tools in order to hunt their prey; these included bows & arrows (for shooting), spears (for stabbing), nets (for snaring) and traps (for trapping). They also used dogs as companions during hunting trips as well as for protection purposes against predators like bears!
