The Woodland culture comprises various cultural manifestations that took place mainly in southern Ontario and Québec between and years Before Present (BP). Archaeologists classify the Woodland period into three distinct episodes: Early Woodland ( BP), Middle Woodland ( BP) and Late Woodland ( BP).

The Eastern Woodland Culture consisted of Indian tribes inhabiting the eastern United States and Canada. The Eastern Woodlands were moderate-climate regions roughly from the Atlantic to the Mississippi River and included the Great Lakes.

This huge area boasted ample rainfall, numerous lakes and rivers, and great forests. Although the CE ending of the Late Woodland period is traditional, in practice many regions of the Eastern Woodlands adopted the full Mississippian culture much later than that.

Some groups in the north and northeast of the current United States, such as the Iroquois, retained a way of life that was technologically identical to the Late Woodland until the arrival of Europeans. Section Six: Late Woodland Period. Between A.D.

Native American - Native American - Eastern Woodland cultures: Outside of the Southwest, Northern America’s early agriculturists are typically referred to as Woodland cultures. This archaeological designation is often mistakenly conflated with the eco-cultural delineation of the continent’s eastern culture areas: the term Eastern Woodland cultures refers to the early agriculturists east of.

The Early and Middle Woodland periods ( BCE CE) were remarkable for their level of culture contact and interaction in pre-Columbian North America. This volume, featuring case studies from Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Mississippi, Kentucky, Alabama, and Tennessee, sheds new light on the various approaches to the study of the dynamic.

They lived in the middle of North America. One of these cultures is called the Hopewell culture. More about the Hopewell Late Woodland period.

Indigenous peoples of the Southeastern Woodlands, Southeastern cultures, or Southeast Indians are an ethnographic classification for Native Americans who have traditionally inhabited the area now part of the Southeastern United States and the northeastern border of Mexico, that share common cultural traits.

A variant of the Woodland tradition was found on the Great Plains. Over most of this area these cultures were replaced by the Mississippian culture (q.v.) in the 1st millennium ad, but in some.

The Mississippian culture flourished in what is now the Midwestern, Eastern, and Southeastern United States from approximately CE to CE (following the Late Woodland Period). After adopting maize agriculture the Mississippian culture became fully agrarian, as opposed to the hunting and gathering supplemented by part-time agriculture.

Mound construction has great antiquity in the Southeast, dating back to at lease BC. Intensive cultivation of native food crops such as chenopodium, sunflowers, and gourds was widespread by BC.
