    One ton of barley/lentil soup will last a long time!

    I added the info on the corn because it reminded me of the Pine Ridge solar panel project, how the Pine Ridge people are bringing in people from other tribes to learn the assembly and installation of the panels then sending them back to their own reservations to do the work there.

    It would take most of a year to train individuals from other tribes to grow and process the corn, but then the skills would be transferred to new tribes.  The people of the longhouse now grow more than they need to eat, and this project is not that old.  Even if the white corn is not suitable for the plains, another native corn might be.  It is the organization and care that makes the white corn project remarkable to me.

    Did you see the diary about the canadian first people organizing?
