Green Corn, Indian Bread: Venison and Chestnut

Venison, Chestnut, Green Corn and Indian Breads

As per John Heckewelder, their (Lenape),  bread is of two kinds; one made up of green corn while in the milk, and another of the same grain when fully ripe and quite dry.  The green corn bread is to the upper left corner of the picture next to the plain Indian Bread made of the dry flour corn.  Baking on the embers are venison bread (front) and chestnut bread.
