What the Native Americans ate

This weekend we went to the Natural Bridge (more on that, perhaps, later) in western Virginia. One of the interesting things there is a mock up of an Indian village including this plaque. Read it and figure out what was interesting to me.

So let me get this straight: when Europeans encountered hunter gatherer tribes unspoiled by civilization in the 17th century they discovered them eating a paleo-style diet? You sure it wasn’t grain and corn? Say it ain’t so!
