Best Answer

They hunted bison and deer. They were also fisherman. They caught oysters and shrimp. They gathered food as well such as berries, nuts, roots, wild grapes, wild honey, persimmons, and other fruit.

---> In response to both the question and the above answer:

The Atakapa - Ishak (Ishak means 'people') are still in existence, along with many other indigenous cultures, who collectively make up 5% of the world's population (according to the Indigenous People Resources website). Don't refer to them in the past tense unless you're just talking about their ancestors. If you want to learn about them as a people of the past and present, go to their website or go to a reliable website, all you have to do is Google them. And to specifically answer the original question: yes, they are mainly fisherman, and that is why the Gulf Oil Spill has been and will continue to harm their culture and livelihood. How can ordinary Americans help? At least talk about it with your family/ friends/co-workers to let them know about the Atakapa- Ishak culture threat. If you want to help further, use ya brain and do what you need to do!
