Fact of the Day: Native American Hammocks

Hammocks were an invention from Native Americans. The Spaniards were the first Europeans to discover the hammock as they came across them during the Spanish Conquest. 


  1. And..The question has to be asked...
    Are they good for you...
    As it turns out, sleeping in a hammock can actually
    help you fall asleep faster and give you “better” rest,
    eliminating tossing and turning. Back pain often leads
    to discomfort, which can disrupt your sleep cycle and even
    prevent you from getting to sleep at all. ... Think of it
    like rocking a baby to sleep....! :). Buonanotte...! :0).

  2. I didn't know they invented them,, thats interesting,,makes sense too!

  3. We still use them today, I tend to fall out of them though lol.

  4. I've always wanted to have a hammock in our backyard but we have too many wildlife around that I don't think I can relax in it!

  5. If only Custer had slept in one. He might have left Little Big Horn alone.

  6. I've never tried out a hammock!

    All the best Jan

  7. Interesting tidbit of info. Hammocks and I don't like each other.

  8. I may get one for me..and didn't know the native americans had invented it..dang.

  9. Didn't know that. I think I'll put up a hammock at the new house. : )
