Oscar Will's published his book, The Pioneer Indian Collection of Seeds in 1915. In his book, Will's introduced the Hidatsa Red Bean to the American Public. This heirloom bean was originally obtained from the Hidatsa tribe of the Missouri River valley of North Dakota. Traditionally, the Hidatsa people collected the seeds after allowing the pods to dry on plant. Once the seeds were dry, they would manually break open each pod in order to collect the seeds. The Hidatsa Red Beans are dark red seeds that taste similar to a kidney bean.
