The Algonquin Indians lived in the northeast in what is
now New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. This land varied from ocean beaches
and marshlands to forests, rivers, valleys, and rocky highlands. The
Great Lake Tribes lived beside the Great Lakes. Some area tribes included the Sauk,
Shawnee, and Winnebago.
|The Algonquin Indians made most of their clothing from elk and deer hides. They decorated it with shells, stones, seeds, paint, dyes, and porcupine quills. The men wore breechcloths and the women wore wraparound skirts. They also wore belts, leggings, and moccasins. In the winter they made fur-lined shawls and wove turkey down robes.|
