This delicious yellow popcorn was grown and harvested by The Lower Brule Sioux Tribe in South Dakota. Popcorn has been an important part of Native American traditions from South America to the Great Lakes for thousands of years. The oldest popcorn known to date was found in New Mexico, carbon dated to be approximately over 5,000 years old. Some tribes threw popcorn directly in the fire and collected the popped kernels off the ground, others popped them in clay pots, some popped them on the cob over the fire.
ABOUT THE FARM
Nestled on the fertile banks of the Missouri River...there is a land as pure as the harvest it produces. Pure air, big blue skies, and an abundance of water has nourished the land and blessed the people of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe. Here the Lakota people invite you to experience a richly unique taste and flavor of popcorn. This delicacy is descended from the very corn grown and popped around Tribal campfires for generations.
