SHARING SISTERS
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 crops for these families . . . for their own consumption and for their livestock.  These two women are sharing the work of preparing to make hominy - the corn has been gathered and shelled and now they are using the hominy basket to strain the corn in the cleaning process . . . it must be washed several times.
