The Friends of Ganondagan’s Iroquois White Corn Project, located at the North Farmhouse, encompasses history, culture, community, entrepreneurship, collaboration, agriculture, health, and food systems. Its goal is to restore the farming, consumption, and distribution of a traditional, nutritious, low-glycemic index Iroquois white corn, used widely by the Haudenosaunee for at least 2,000 years. It was grown in abundance at 17th-century Ganondagan until 500,000 bushels of it—the food that sustained the 4,500 people living there—was burnt by the French in 1687.
