Comments:
The Oshkosh Public Museum would like to thank Todd Wegner, who assembled and donated this deer skeleton for a school project in 1988.

Think of this deer as a department store on legs! To early Native people, deer were an important resource. A single animal could provide nearly everything a person needed to survive:

1. Meat to eat
2. Hide and fur for clothing, bags, and mats
3. Sinew for bowstrings and thread
4. Bones for projectile points, scrapers, needles, and other tools
5. Antlers for spear points
6. Hooves for rattles
7. Scraps for glue
Material:
Bone
