Traditional Iroquois Corn: Its History, Cultivation, and Use (NRAES 179)

Other Titles
Abstract
This book focuses on the traditional, open-pollinated Iroquois varieties of corn similar to the varieties that existed when European colonizers first landed in North America, and that are still cultivated today. The concise book explores the importance of corn to Iroquois and North American history and culture, serves as an introduction to planting corn, and provides methods for preparing delicious corn foods. The text is supplemented with 19 illustrations that depict Iroquois corn in present and past contexts. Includes reproductions of three painting by Ernest Smith showing Iroquois women working with corn.
