Best Answer

Native Americans found food by hunting area wildlife, farming, and gathering from bushes, plants and trees. To make their clothes, Native Americans used hides from animals to form pants, skirts, shoes and more. For shelter, different tribes used different manners to protect themselves from the elements like wigwams, tepees, and even igloos.
