Inscription.  Some resident Oklahoma tribes, such as the Wichita and Caddo people, have been living in Oklahoma for thousands of years. As farmers they cultivated corn, pumpkin, and other crops. Their gardens looked different from ours today. How do you think they might have looked? Can you find the Three Sisters Garden and use it as a hint!
