This informative children's book tells about the northwastern woodlands and the two major language groups that lived in them. The Iroquoian and Algonkian nations did not always get along, but they all shared a common way of life - Life in a Longhouse Village. These clans lived in the permanent longhouse homes and grew crops, hunted and farmed. Children will learn about the lifestyle of these peoples and the activities that they preformed daily, including the village life, the roles of every person within the clan and the use of everything pulled from the land.
