Food gathered in the Winter

Among all of the seasons, the winter was the worst for gathering food. The Tlingits mostly lived on what they had stored up during the following seasons. If the food sources got a bit scarce or if they needed fresh food, the men went out and gathered clams, cockles, and mussels off the beach. They also hunted deer, and mountain goats. Another thing that the Tlingits hunted was fish. One of the most common fish that they fished for were cutthroat trout. The picture to the right is cutthroat trout swimming in a stream. The Tlingits also caught seals, and otter, as they needed them. These were the different foods that were caught during the winter.
