Fun Facts from Plimoth’s Wampanoag

WampanoagMilkweed fluff was used for babies’ diapers.

Skunk and duck were the two most commonly eaten meat.

To catch a duck, the women would swim near them, then grab their feet from below and pull them under.

A skunk can only spray when all four feet are on the ground. Young boys would work together to catch skunks. One would draw the skunk’s attention, the other would sneak up from behind, grab its tail and hoist it up.
