Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article discusses Native American hunting and fishing traditions in the prehistoric American Bottom. The ages and sexes of the animals found on archaeological sites can be used by the zooarchaeologist to determine the hunting and fishing strategies of the First Americans. Among the types of game hunted by Native American children were squirrels, turkeys, geese and pheasants. According to the author, deer drives were not practiced in the American Bottom due to lack of archaeological evidence.
