Three Sisters Garden Harvest Festival

Known as the Three Sisters, corn, beans and squash comprise the staples of life for the Haudenosaunee, the Indigenous peoples of New York state. But they’re more than just food; the plants are also sacred and included in the Haudenosaunee creation story.

Binghamton University, in partnership with the Onondaga Nation, created its own Three Sisters Garden to honor the Indigenous peoples who call this land their ancestral home.

At this event, members of the Onondaga Nation return to the Binghamton University Three Sisters Garden to celebrate the harvest. There will be a presentation on traditional Haudenosaunee foods and a corn-braiding demonstration.
