The Abenaki were a farming society that supplemented agriculture with hunting and gathering.Generally the men were the hunters. The women tended the fields and grew the crops. In their fields, they planted the crops in groups of "sisters". The three sisters were grown together: the stalk of corn supported the beans, and squash or pumpkins provided ground cover and reduced weeds.
The men would hunt bears, deer, fish, and birds.
