Grits is a porridge made from boiled cornmeal. Hominy grits are a type of
grits made from hominy – corn that has been treated with an alkali in a
process called nixtamalization with the pericarp removed
The dish came from a Native American Muskogee tribe's recipe in the 16th
century, of Indian corn similar to hominy or maize. The Muskogee would grind
the corn in a stone mill, giving it a “gritty” texture.[4] They were made
using a stone-grounder. The colonists and settlers enjoyed the new staple
with the local Native Americans and it became an American staple dish

"The dish came from a Native American Muskogee tribe's recipe in the 16th century..."

Grits are much, much older than the 16th century.

"The evidence exists," says Murray, "that corn was being milled in 8700 B.C. in Central America. There must have been a dish of ground corn and water cooked over heat. It's a food product that's not just historic — it's ancient."

Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.
