The Wampanoag Tribe is the local tribe of Native Americans that are from Massachusetts. Sadly, after befriending the Pilgrims during the first Thanksgiving, the British quickly overtook them, killing them for their land.
Breechcloth - Long rectangular piece of hide or cloth tucked over a belt, so that the flaps fell down in front and behind. They were usually worn with leggings.
Skirts - Women usually wore only skirts, with no shirt. Here they are dressed in their traditional tribe clothing.
Male and Female Clothing:
Deerskin mantle - Both male and female did not wear shirts until it got cold. They usually wore deerskin shirts to keep their bodies warm! Men would also paint their bodies with tribal tattoos.
Moccasins - These were the shoe choice of most Native American men and women, usually made of beaver and other small rodents' furs.
Headband - Rather than wearing long headdresses, the Wampanoag wore beaded headbands with just a few feathers on it.
Wampanoag villages were built around a central square. Councils and ceremonies were frequently performed in the town square.
Women harvested corn, squash, and beans.
Men hunted for deer, turkeys, and small game and went fishing in their canoes.
Wampanoag children collected berries, nuts and other herbs.
