Connecticut's Indigenous Communities and their Natural World
CT’s indigenous communities have long, rich histories that extend back to when they shared Mother Earth with mastodons and other extinct animals. Through those thousands of years, Native Americans became experts in their natural environments, a necessity for their physical survival. New England was not a “wilderness”, as described by the early English settlers, but a built landscape. Our first environmental stewards, Native American communities had long been managing their physical environments to enhance plant and animal populations. Indigenous folklore and sacred stories promoted this stewardship. Birds were an important part of the environmental planning, not just as a food source but also for their spiritual significance.
