The fourth graders in Jennifer Hill’s class at Southtowns Catholic School ended National Native American Heritage month by creating longhouses.
Longhouses are homes that were used by the Haudenosaunee people. They were made with pole frames and elm bark covering and could be 200 feet long, 20 feet wide, and 20 feet high.
Inside the longhouse, raised platforms created a second story, which was used for storage and sleeping space.
Each longhouse housed an entire clan-- as many as 60 people.
