    Native Americans had established a unique and fragile relationship with the Earth before European settlers first came to The New World. Many Native American tribes both farmed and hunted, growing native plants like corn, beans, squash, blueberries, rice, cotton, tobacco and many other crops that they could eat or trade with one another. Some of these were manufactured into dishes such as cornbread or succotash. Hunting for many game animals such as rabbit, deer, duck, pheasant, and turkey were common prey of Native Americans along with marine life such as fish and shellfish for those that lived on the coasts. Some tribes that lived solely on the grasslands were nomadic tribes, following the mighty buffalo across the vast grassy desert while foraging for wild edibles along the way.
