The Ohlone's Food Supply

The Ohlones ate all different foods. The Ohlones ate wild carrots and wild mushrooms. They also ate strawberries.

While the women were picking, the men were hunting deer and antelope.

A family would pick acorns to be boiled to be used in thick porridge or bread. They would also catch fish, shellfish, and clams.

The bows were made out of yew for hunting. The Ohlones ate many foods. They hunted geese, dove, quail, and rabbits for their food. The Ohlone spears were for smaller animals.

Acorns were the most important food in their diet. The women would gather vegetables.
