Biography/HistoryBuffalo Bird Woman, Hidatsa, remarked in 1912 than an industrious family could harvest and store enough corn to last until the next year's harvest. Corn was also a valuable trade commodity. "The Standing Rock Sioux used to buy corn from us -- not because they were starving, but because they liked our corn and had lots of meat to trade. They gave a tanned robe for one string of braided corn" Maxidiwiac, Buffalo Bird Woman, aged 71, Hidatsa, Independence, North Dakota, 1912.
