"Our First Farmers" at the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center tells the story of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Indians who were cultivating corn, beans, squash and sunflowers for hundreds of years before Lewis & Clark arrived. How those native crops formed the very foundation of today's modern agricultural industry is told through the story of the Oscar H. Will Seed Company of Bismarck, which took native seeds and made them available to early homesteaders eager for "northern hearty" varieties.
