Mohawk celebrates Indigenous traditions

June 15, 2016

Mohawk College recently held a Three Sisters planting ceremony at its Fennell Campus. The Three Sisters—corn, beans, and squash—have traditionally been planted together by the Haudenosaunee people because of the plants’ abilities to work together to thrive. The planting ceremony was designed to be a hands-on way of sharing Indigenous knowledge and traditions and of celebrating Indigenous cultures. The planting took place alongside the location of Mohawk’s new Indigenous Gathering Place, the Hoop Dance, which is slated to open later this month.
