May 2016 - People who lived in the Iroquois nation in the northeast part of North America ate mainly corn and beans and squash that they farmed. They made the corn into flat bread like tacos or tortillas, or into polenta (grits) by boiling it in water like oatmeal. They kept a pot of corn mash soup simmering over the fire all day, and people could just dip some out whenever they got hungry.
Iroquois people also gathered many wild foods, including blueberries, mushrooms, and wild roots that were not too different from carrots, onions, garlic, and potatoes.
