In Indian Territory (Eastern Oklahoma) most families were mixed bloods and most were farmers. The work in the fields was often shared by neighbors . . . the work was necessary for survival and very hard BUT it was also almost a social opportunity for the families. Corn was the most important crop for these families . . . for their own consumption and for their livestock. These two women are sharing the work of preparing to make hominy - one is picking and carrying the corn and the other is shelling. This is just the beginning of the work needed to create a favorite food.
