Woodland Period (1,000 B.C. – 1,650 A.D.)
Woodland Period saw another major change in technology and the use of the land.
The introduction of pottery, the shift from using spears to bow and arrows, and
the introduction of agriculture to Ontario greatly changed how the people used
and lived within the land. They switched from living in small campsites, hunting
and gathering wild plants and animals to growing corn, beans and squash, the
"three sisters", while living in large villages. This change was gradual. The
Woodland period can be broken down into three sub-periods based on the
progression of this change: Early, Middle and Late.
