Encampments

Village life

Yet the Potawatomi lived in semi-permanent villages where they grew crops, gathered food and hunted. They lived in wickiups — domed dwellings framed with slender green saplings and covered with pliable birch or elm bark. During the winter the villages separated into small hunting bands. The Potawatomi gathered nuts, fruits, berries and wild rice, hunted bison and other game and cultivated maize and squashes. They speared fish in Lake Michigan and its tributaries. In March they tapped sugar maples and boiled down the sap for use as a condiment.

 


Before contact with European traders the Potawatomi made clothing from fur and animal hides. They wore
leggings, breechcloths and shirts. In cooler weather they used fur robes. Fur turbans and feathers adorned their heads. When trade goods became available, they used cloth and decorated their clothing with beads and other novelties. The men often tattooed and scarified themselves and they painted their faces and bodies. The women decorated themselves with elaborate quill work -- later bead work -- and appliques.

Step back in time as you stroll through our living encampment. Here you will get a feel of what it was like back then. Learn about the Potawatomi Heritage!
