THE FOOD PLANTS
We think of all of the food plants of the world. There are
so many kinds.
The food plants help the people, birds, insects, and animals
to live. The food plants provide the nourishment that we all
need so that we can go about our daily activities. We are
especially grateful to the corn, beans, and squash.They are known to us as “The Three Sisters”.They are the staples of the traditional Haudenosaunee
corn, beans and squash are planted separately, they grow.But when they are planted together, they help each
other to grow better. They give us strength, but they also
remind us to work together and to cooperate with one
another. We gather all of the food plants together in our
minds and send them warm greetings, words of love, and
expressions of gratitude.
Now our minds are one.
