    Cattails, or Typha, are quite useful as a food source and for various household uses. As a food, flour can be processed from the underground stems to produce an energy-rich and nutritious food. Native Americans used the fluffy material of Typha for a variety of purposes, including bedding, tinder, and to line moccasins. Even today, clothing, pillows, and life vests are some of the items that are still stuffed with Typha down.
