The Wyandot were farming people. Wyandot women harvested corn, beans, squash, and sunflowers. Wyandot men hunted deer, wild turkeys, and small game, and went fishing in the rivers. Wyandot recipes included cornbread, soups, and stews.
Fish such as sturgeon, pike and a variety of shellfish such as clams, oysters, lobsters and scallops were an important part of their food supply. The Huron men also provided meat from deer (venison) and smaller game like squirrel, rabbit, wild turkey and duck.
The Huron Wendat were farmers who grew corn, beans, and squash. Sixty-five percent of their diet consisted of corn.
Wyandot (sometimes spelled Wandat) is the Iroquoian language traditionally spoken by the people known variously as Wyandot or Wyandotte, descended from the Tionontati. It is considered a sister to the Wendat language, spoken by descendants of the Huron-Wendat Confederacy.
During the American Revolution the Wyandots fought for the British against the Americans. When the British surrendered, the American Indians were left to fight the Americans on their own. According to the Anglo-American historical record, the Wyandot were regarded as fierce warriors.
The Huron gathered berries and roots for food, as well as other things that could be used for making different medicines. Inuit ate only meat and fish. Lichens and moss were the only types of vegetation that grew in the Arctic. The Inuit people did not want to eat the lichens and moss right off the rocks.
Following a series of 17th century armed conflicts, the Huron-Wendat were dispersed by the Haudenosaunee in 1650. However, the Huron-Wendat First Nation still remains (located in Wendake, Quebec) and as of July 2018, the nation had 4,056 registered members.

The last tribe of Indians left Ohio in 1843. They were the Wyandots and their name will forever be tied to the state. The Wyandots were not the largest tribe and had not lived here the longest, quite the contrary.

Still hunted by the Iroquois, the Wyandot sought to establish a peace with the Iroquois which was achieved in 1700. The Wyandots initially settled in around the Detroit area and eventually migrated into the Ohio territory past the Great Black Swamp, along the Sandusky River.
Today, there are about 1,500 Mohicans, with roughly half of them living on a reservation in northeastern Wisconsin. The link between the modern inhabitants of the town of Bethlehem and the descendents of its ancient people was made through physical objects.
The last Indians in Ohio were removed in 1843 via Treaty with the Wyandots (1842) by which the reservation at Upper Sandusky was ceded to the United States, and the Wyandots relocated to Oklahoma in 1843.
