Known as the "sustainers of life", the Iroquois consider corn, beans, and squash to be special gifts from the Creator. These three sisters, sisters who would never be apart from one another, should be planted together and celebrated together. Pole beans were interplanted with squash and corn, using the strength of the sturdy corn stalks to supportthe twining beans and the shade of the spreading squash vines to trap moisture for the growing crop.
