Mini -Report Example

Nez Perce

Foods and Medicines

The Nez Perce hunted, fished and collected their foods. During the summer, the men hunted game in the mountains like deer, elk, bear, mountain sheep and goats. There was also small game such as beaver and game birds. Since they had horses, they would travel to the plains of Montana to hunt bison (buffalo) and antelope. They fished for salmon in the rivers which they dried or smoked to preserve for the entire year.

Women collected many plants, in particular the camas root which was boiled or baked. Berries, pine nuts and other plants rounded out their diet. There were plants that they used as medicine, however, the sweat lodge was used the most to cure illnesses and for spiritual and body cleansing purposes.

Tribe Poster

  • Each tribe group will be given a blank poster in class to assemble for their presentation.

  • Each member will have a portion of the poster ( 7 inch x 8 inch rectangle) to attach picture(s) and a “mini-report”. The picture may be hand-drawn, or printed out. The mini-report needs to be typed.

  • The tribe name will need be on the top of the poster.
