The article discusses how the lives of Native Americans and white-tailed deer have long been intertwined. To eastern woodland tribes, deer were essential for survival, providing everything from food to weapons. In fact, with the exception of the bison and the Plains Indians, the white-tailed deer probably did more to sustain and nurture Native Americans than any other single animal species. The white-tail was a virtual "general store" to the native people of the northeast.
