Strong Native American Women : exhibit in Chicago museum

My posts have more lag time than Sophie’s – sorry, but I am doing ALL the driving!

I want to highlight some cool info we got a couple of days ago at the Mitchell Museum in Evanston (Chicago):

We found out about how Haudenosaunee (Iroquios) work with agriculture, in particular, what they refer to as The Three Sisters: beans, corn and squash. These three plants were grown together because of the way they support each other & the earth. As part of the museum’s exhibit on Contemporary Native Women, we learned about Dr Jane Mt. Pleasant who is an expert in Iroquois horticultural practices and an advocate for womens’ rights, native practices & ecology.
