Also, who discovered the Calusa tribe?
Juan Ponce de León
Additionally, who did the Calusa tribe trade with? In their early period there is evidence of sacrifice of captives and of cannibalism. The Calusa also journeyed to Cuba and other Caribbean islands, trading in fish, skins, and amber. During the 16th century they defended their shores from a succession of Spanish explorers.
Besides, what did the Calusa tribe look like?
The Calusas didn't wear much clothing. Just like today, the weather in southwestern Florida was always warm. Calusa men wore only breechcloths, and Calusa women wore short skirts made of palm leaves. Shirts were not necessary in Calusa culture, and people usually went barefoot.
What were the aims of the Calusa project?
These interactions, known though historical accounts, characterize the Calusa as a network of village alliances throughout southwest Florida. Although this thesis depends on historical evidence, its primary objective is to use archaeology to explore unrecorded dimensions of Spanish-Calusa interaction.
