Native Americans used many of the plants you see today for food, shelter, transportation, clothing and more. Pine tree trunks were used to make dugout canoes for travelling on creeks and bays. Saw palmetto and palm fronds were used as thatching for roofs. Parts of the palm and palmetto were twisted into ropes. Look around you and imagine how you might use the plants around you to survive. But remember, just use your imagination as everything here is protected.
