This is a modern replica of a garden that would have been planted by historic American Indians like the Myaamia. The garden contains corn, beans, and squash. Myaamia women planted individual gardens near their homes and together worked collective fields of only miincipi (corn) in the flood plain near the village. The Myaamia were known for cultivating a unique, soft white corn that was extremely valuable as a trade good. Ohio Historical Society Image TAH0219.
