1905:Tewa Child (New Mexico):For many Indigenous People in the Americas,the Three Sisters are:Corn,or Maize,Beans and Squash.Although this food has a variety of names,these three staples remain the heart of most Indigenous diets.About this Food Trio:the staples are all interdependent on one another.Beans grow up the Corn stalks and add the nutrients (Nitrogen) to the soil that the others need to grow.Squash is planted in between them to keep weeds out.All three of these foods originally came from the Indigenous People of Mexico,Central and South America,then slowly made their way North to our Native People.Southwestern Nations (Navajo,Hopis) use the Ancient irrigation methods of their Ancestors to grow a colorful collection of corn.These Natives harvest cactus,plant vegetables and chilies and raise sheep which are rarely eaten,but provide the abundance of wool used for their beautiful woven rugs.- Kits:by “Creative Victorian Designs”,“Paper”:Thomas Moran (1837-1926)
