Ais Indians

Indians, Native Americans, that is what our 3rd grader has been studying so far this school year.

Along with studying explores like Christopher Columbus.

We have even researched the Ais Indians who lived in this region of Florida.

The Ais were great fishermen, and their diet was rich in fish, turtle, and shellfish.  They also ate cocoplums, sabal palm berries and other fruits. 

From what we know, their homes were similar to this, with palm fronds on the tops and sides. 

(Since there were not enough palm fronds, our Sycamore tree branches had to suffice).

So since Hurricane (tropical storm) Issac is headed our way, we will see how this Indian home survives the next 48 hours.
