Unit 1 Continued (Presentation 2): The Algonquians

Unit 1 Continued (Presentation 2): The Algonquians Territory The Algonquin people travelled through parts of Northern Canada, mostly in the areas currently known as Ontario and Quebec. They tended to stick to areas with lots of birch trees, a very important resource in the building of their canoes, making containers and for covers of wigwams which were a temporary shelter.

These tribes focused mainly on hunting but also did a little farming to help them survive. They grew mainly beans, squash and corn but also collected berries and wild rice. Fish were also a big part of their diet, as was the meat of moose and deer. While some lived in wigwams, which were intended for single families, other Algonquins lived in long houses which also contained several fire pits for heat, cooking and light. Several families would reside in these longhouses in a very communal setting. Most women wore long tunics over leggings while men wore short tunics. Both wore moccasins and fur in the winters.

Each Algonquin group lived in a village with a chief who inherited his title from his father. Chiefs were spokesmen rather than dictators. In fact, all members of the village were allowed to express their opinion and decision were made by a concensus, a general agreement on a topic. This group also believed in supernatural powers and beings. They believed that all animals had spiritual power and were respected. Originally, the Algonquin were friendly with the French until they began to believe in their greed. They switched alliances to the British while the French allied themselves with the Iroquois.
