Lesson Hook/Preview

Our historic homeland boundaries consist of present-day Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky and Tennessee. One important aspect of our homelands included the use of natural resources, including the waterways, which we used as a source of food, transportation, a means for trading, protection against raiding tribes and Europeans, and for religious practices.
