NativeTech: Native American Technology and Art

Guess the Word Before the Turtle Hides in His Shell!

All the words are Wild Edible Plants from Eastern and Central North America
Note: a few of these plants have been introduced by Europeans

Note: Many of these plants need special preparation before they can be eaten!
Teach children not to put plants in their mouths. Keep all plants away from infants.
Be absolutely certain which parts of a plant should be collected and at what season, and the proper way to use them!
