Eastern Woodland Tribes settled in the North East corner of North America thousands of years ago. Some tribal names are Cherokee,
Choctaw, Seminole, Powhatan, Mohican and many more. These tribes learned to live among the forests of the Eastern part of
the country. They used the trees to help them live. They made canoes, fishing nets and spears to help feed their families.
They also used the trees to build their homes. The Eastern Woodland tribes built their homes near their gardens of corn,
beans and squash. Because they were not going to be moving constantly they could build the sturdy homes.
