The Provider

Shawnee Hunter – 18th Century

The Eastern Woodland Indians were in constant need of fresh meat and pelts to eat and to sell or barter for other necessities.

Native American men were the hunters who performed this difficult task in extreme conditions. They had to be agile and strong in order to pursue their prey and withstand the hardships of the hunt. There were many accidents and many Indian men eventually suffered from illnesses such as rheumatism, consumption and many others. Neither frozen or deep creeks nor rivers could be an obstacle for the hunter when chasing deer, bear or other animals fleeing at full speed
