The Three Sisters refers to the manner in which Indigenous Nations would grow their Corn, Beans and Squash together. The corn grows tall but removes nutrients from the soil. The beans are a vine that needs the stalk of the corn to grow upwards and reach the sun. They also put nutrients back into the soil. The squash grow at the base of the cornstalk and prevent weeds from growing and disrupting the growth of the three sisters.
Each of the Three Sisters can help each other grow as they work together towards a common goal. In this way, Three Sisters Consulting fosters a relationship with Indigenous Nations and their Partners towards a mutually beneficial goal where all parties involved can grow and benefit each other.
