Native American Gardening - Buffalobird-Woman's Guide

By Gilbert L. Wilson. Of special interest to economic historians, anthropologists, or anyone fascinated by Native American life. In 1917, anthropologist Gilbert Wilson recorded a year of gardening activities of Buffalo Bird Woman, a Hidatsa Indian born in 1839 North Dakota and raised in the tradition of sustainable agriculture. A fascinating account of how the women (who did all the agricultural work) broke ground and cultivated extensive crops of corn, squash, beans and sunflowers. Full of information on seed varieties, harvesting, drying, saving seed and food preparation. She also recalls songs, stories and ritualistic ceremonies essential to a successful harvest. Captivating reading.
