About Iroquois White Corn

The Iroquois White Corn Project, originally Pinewoods Community Farming, began as the vision of Dr. John Mohawk (Seneca) and Dr. Yvonne Dion-Buffalo (Samson Cree). Their desire to bring Iroquois White Corn back as a staple of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) diet began a decade-long project that has returned to its original home, Ganondagan.

Iroquois White Corn is traditionally managed and protected to bring nutritious corn products from heirloom seeds dating back at least 1,400 years in Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) communities. Hand-grown, hand-picked, and hand-processed, Iroquois White Corn products are nutritious, non-GMO, gluten-free, and have a low glycemic index.

Our goal is to restore the farming, consumption, and distribution of traditional Iroquois White Corn to Native American communities and to offer Iroquois White Corn products to the community at large.

Iroquois White Corn, along with beans and squash, is often called "Three Sisters." Learn more by reading the "Legend of the Three Sisters."

Made with Good Minds once again at Ganondagan, our Iroquois White Corn is available for your own culinary creations. Healthy for you, healthy for Mother Earth.
