The legacy of the Mississippian culture lives forever through the Three Sisters Garden, like the one you see planted here.

The American Indians who lived here over 500 years ago were expert farmers whose most important crops were corn, beans, and squash - often referred to as
the "Three Sisters."

Sunflowers, other plants, meat, and fish rounded out their diets.

The Mississippians had no refrigeration, but they made their harvests last by drying some food (corn, beans, meat) and processing it throughout the winter.
Other foods, like squash and root vegetables kept well through the cold months.

Even though the diet was limited back then, can you think of delicious dishes
you could have made with these foods?
