I'm doing an 1830 Oklahoma Cherokee garden to honor Carl Barnes and my late grandma next year at my community farm and a little bit of the Wendat nation who were part of the Huron confedracy centuries ago. You know the Wendat?

I'm aware of them. I live around where they used to live when they were in Ohio & I know they mostly ended up in Missouri. I don't know anything about their plants, though.

I've spoken to you once or twice before. I figured you might be interested in the find, whether you planned to add them or not. But, sadly, that was the only other thing I could find. After that, I actually started going through the archives of a group that does heirloom garden seems from Appalachia, but I can't find records that anything they have directly connects back to any tribe in particular. So, nothing new to report, sadly. I'd tell you if I knew.

You also grew Haudenusnee white corn before? I grew only the Myaamia one.

No. This will be our first heirloom crop. My brother was clearing land to expand his garden & said he wanted to try to grow pumpkins & watermelon, so I talked him into this & kind of found the Boston Marrows on accident.
