North American & Southern Native American Staple Foods

Submitted by: VEHAMILTON1
North American & Southern Native American Staple Foods

Introduction

The staple foods for Native Americans are the combination of corn or maize, beans and squash which were called 'The Three Sisters".

Most every meal contains at least one or all three of these foods.

Native people planted the three plants together such that the beans grew on the tall stalks of the corn, while the squash formed a ground cover to protect the plants from weeds.

They grew corn or maize, for hominy and dried it to make corn meal. Flour for bread was made from dried, ground acorns.

They had plantations and grew potatoes, pumpkins, beans, tomatoes, peppers, sassafras, muscadines, blackberries, raspberries, other wild berries and wild onions.
