Kiišiinkwia Kiilhswa

July 16, 2018

Kiišiinkwia Kiilhswa – the Green Corn Moon – is the sixth month of the Myaamia lunar calendar. The name for this lunar month refers to corn that is in the milk stage and can be eaten raw off the cob much like today’s common “sweet corn.”  Myaamia miincipi that is planted in Wiihkoowia Kiilhswa ‘Whippoorwill Moon’ will typically reach this stage during Kiišiinkwia Kiilhswa.  After miincipi leaves the milk stage, the kernels become dense and hard and require processing before they can be eaten. Kiišiinkwia Kiilhswa was often a time of celebration and feasting as many other vegetables and fruits also ripen during this month.  Typically, Kiišiinkwia Kiilhswa falls in the Gregorian months of July and August.
