Chequessett Chocolate: Feast of the First Light

The inspiration for this bar was to feature indigenous Wampanoag ingredients, primarily in the form of corn , one of the most important crops historically and culturally to the Wampanoag people. For the Wampanoag there has always been a deep respect and gratitude for the life-giving sustenance that the corn provided. They would interplant corn, beans, and squash together to form a Three Sisters Garden. Interplanted gardens such as these have ecological advantages: soil regeneration, varied nutrition, and resistance to plant pests and disease. Corn was also stored and preserved during the cold winter months, providing sustenance for the winter months ahead.

We invite you to take part in this sweet and meaningful expression of gratitude to the harvest and to the Wampanoag tribe for our namesake and the land upon which we make our chocolate. A portion of the proceeds of this bar will be donated to the Indigenous Imprint, which is an indigenous owned non-profit that offers educational programs, land conservation consultations; as well preserving resources of cultural importance.
