I wonder how well the three sisters - maize, beans, and squash - would grow using traditional mound growing methods in that region. Could be a food revolution.

How much can you grow at 14,000 feet? I'm sure there are things they could do better, but likely they are pastoralists because that is what has proven to work best.

I liked the video, especially the scenes at the end with footage of the people and their animals.
