Introducing a new series. Things you were never taught in school about native Americans. I hope to impart some glimpse at false history and have some fun educating people as well. These will most likely be short and scattered randomly. I will do two today because I want to start the series off right. This will be all for today. Until next week!
Corn (or maize), as we learned in elementary school, was a staple crop of the Native Americans, both in Mexico, where it was probably first domesticated, and to the north and south. There were hundreds of uses for it, and baking it into a kind of hearth bread was one of them.
Popcorn was another corn based food invented by Native Americans.
