Tools and structures are a necessary part of everyday life, but do we ever think about how they are made? In a Native American village 1,000 years ago, the inhabitants would work together to build anything they might need. This included workstations, or areas where specific jobs would be performed, such as drying racks, smoking stations or garden platforms. Join Griffin Kalin (Cherokee-Seneca descent) in our replicated Algonkian village as he builds these necessary items and explains their uses and significance to Native life.<br /><br /><br />
