The 3 Sisters: Their Legacy In Native Culture Part II Program Is Aug. 14
Friday, July 30, 2021
Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park invites the public to participate in a one-hour ranger-led program exploring the unique horticulture practice of the Three Sisters and the food it provided on Saturday, Aug. 14 at 2 p.m. This program will take place at the Moccasin Bend National Archeological District at approximately 200 Moccasin Bend Road in Chattanooga. Special program signs will direct visitors to the program site, where participants can set up lawn chairs underneath a tin-roof shed for shelter and shade.
"In Part II of our discussion on the Three Sisters form of agriculture, we will be discussing the various ways each produce would have been harvested, stored and cooked, officials said.
"Corn, beans and squash were a staple of many American Indian tribes. We hope you will join us as we learn just how these vegetables were used to produce the sustenance that so many native cultures relied on throughout the centuries, and how you too can cook some traditional recipes."
