The Three Sisters: history, culture and ways of growing

In this webinar, Elder Lix Lopez, member of the Maya in Exile Garden, will  highlight the importance of the Three Sisters – corn,  beans and squash – for  Mayan diet and culture. Through storytelling, he will describe the origin of this popular plant sisterhood, its relevance for the Mayan people and culture, and other Indigenous peoples on Turtle Island (also known as North America), and the technique behind successfully growing the Three Sisters in the Coast Salish territory.

This event will be one hour, with an optional 30 minute Q&A at the end. It will be transmitted in English, online through Zoom from the unceded and ancestral territories of xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.

This webinar is recommended for school community members ages 12 years and up who are interested in learning more about Indigenous food traditions, in particular the intertwined story of human and plant emigration and adaptation of the Three Sisters.

Date: April 26th, 3:30pm-4:30pm PST
(+30min optional Question & Answer session)
Speaker: Elder Lix Lopez, Maya in Exile Garden member
