The Iroquois White Corn Project and Conflict Kitchen work together to bring light to indigenous peoples' cuisine and history.

The living history of the Haudenosaunee people can be found in the kernels of white corn.

The Haudenosaunee people (also known as Iroquois) are resurrecting one of their ancestral staple foods: white corn. Along with beans and squash, this nutritious strain of corn is one of the three sisters, a group that plays a significant role in Haudenosaunee cuisine and culture. By reclaiming white corn, members of the six nations of the Haudenosaunee people are celebrating their history, as well as their future.
