Description

For centuries, from Mesoamerica to the American Southwest, peoples in this region have found sustenance in the basic foods presented in the exhibit Three Sisters: Corn, Beans and Squash.

By presenting the botanical history, the medicinal value and the cultural meaning of these foods, we hope to interest visitors in the foods that provided nutrition to the earliest farmers.

The exhibit is presented in both English and Spanish.
