  • Woodland Period: the period of Native-American life in which gardening increased and led to more sedentary  lifestyle (1,000 B.C. to A.D. 1000)
  • Late Prehistoric Period: the period in which corn-based farming flourished and led to an increase in population, larger villages, and trade (A.D. 1000 to 1750)
