Things That Sustain Us

— Ganondagon State Historic Site —

Although the Seneca were successful hunters and gatherers, they were famed for their horticulture. Up until colonial times Seneca cultivators were primarily women, and the plant world was associated with their aspect of life. Central to Seneca material and spiritual well-being were three crops: corn, beans, and squash.

The Seneca believe these crops, termed the Three Sisters, sustain human live. The ceremonial year is heavily associated with their growth and harvest. Planting time and two harvests of corn are celebrated with great enthusiasm among traditional Seneca.

Huge stores of corn and beans were discovered in the picketed granary on Fort Hill during the Denonville Campaign of 1687. Denonville estimated his soldiers destroyed over 440,000 bushels of old and new corn that summer in the four major Seneca towns.
