The three sisters are Corn, Bean and Squash. They are tiered in height with corn being the larger to symbolize the importance of corn itself in the developments of the Hopi civilization and its ability to sustain itself. Corn is sacred and plays and integral part in almost every faucet of Hopi ceremonial life.
The Hopi are dry farmers and each crop is considered a miracle as well as a gift. Bean sprouts are grown in the dark of winter and are passed out to the village by Crow Mother as a promise of what the next harvest will bring. The squash grown will be stored and used when the freshness of the harvest is long gone. The Hopi give thanks that their prayers for rain have brought bountiful crops.
