Homage to Corn/Maize
Maize or corn is a type of grass. It was domesticated in Mexico nine to ten
thousand years ago. About four thousand years ago it was brought north during the migrations.
Corn Mother is one of the most important entities in Pueblo life. There are many ceremonies devoted to her.
She is synonymous with Mother Earth, and represents growth, fertility, nourishment, life, and the feminine aspects of this world.
