AbstractThis work documents the agricultural practices and foodways of the Hidatsa as related by Buffalo Bird Woman, who learned from the knowledgeable women of her community to grow and prepare such staples as corn, beans, squash and sunflowers, honing her skills for four decades before resettlement on allotted reservation lands and imposed use of the plow and introduced cultivars disrupted native subsistence practices adapted to the local environment.
