Squash

Posted in Primary Sources and Artifacts

The Myaamia cultivated eemihkwaani (squash) as a part of their diet. They would have grown the squash and other crops like corn and beans.  In the fall, the Myaamia would dry the squash in cut rings. The dried eemihkwaani could then be stored all winter. The Myaamia women were the primary farmers and because of this, controlled much of the food supply for the community.
