"CORN WOMAN" IS THE NATIVE AMERICAN GODDESS OF NOURISHMENT, AND MANY NATIVE AMERICANS HONOR HER; SHE IS THE PERSONIFICATION OF MAIZE AND THE FERTILITY OF THE EARTH. SHE IS A TRIPLE GODDESS IN THAT SHE GROWS FROM YOUNG TO OLD, EVENTUALLY SACRIFICING HERSELF SO THAT HER BODY MAY NOURISH AND SEED THE EARTH WITH CORN SO THAT HER PEOPLE MAY LIVE AND EAT. SHE TEACHES HER FOLLOWERS HOW TO PROPERLY PRAY AND HONOR THE DEITIES...AS WELL AS HOW TO SUSTAIN HEALTH THROUGH THE CULTIVATION OF FOOD.

CORN WOMAN APPEARS IN MANY MYTHS, AND HER ROLE WAS TO PROVIDED THE FIRST CORN TO HUMANKIND. IN MOST OF HER ROLES, THE CORN IS PRODUCED FROM HER BLOOD, HER NAIL CLIPPINGS, AND EVEN THE LICE ON HER HEAD. IN THE STORIES OF THE CREEKS, WE FIND HER LIVING ALONGSIDE OTHER MEN AND WOMEN LONG BEFORE THEY KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT FARMING.

THE CORN MOTHER


IN THE HOUSE WITH THE TORTOISE CHAIR "SHE WILL GIVE BIRTH TO THE PEARL"TO THE BEAUTIFUL FEATHER...."THERE SHE SITS ON THE TORTOISE"SWELLING TO GIVE US BIRTH"ON YOUR WAY, ON YOUR WAY"CHILD BE ON YOUR WAY TO ME HERE,"YOU WHOM I MADE NEW...."

"--AZTEC POEM TO THE CORN MOTHER-- "

SHE IS A SPIRIT THAT IS SENT DOWN FROM HEAVEN EVERY YEAR TO COME AND WALK IN THE FIELDS, AND WHEN SHE WALKS IN THE FIELDS, THE CORN BEGINS TO GROW TALL AND BEAUTIFUL. SHE BRINGS WITH HER THE BOUNTY OF THE EARTH, ITS HEALING CAPABILITIES AND ITS NURTURING NATURE...AND SHE IS HAPPY TO SHARE OF THE BOUNTY AND GIVE TO ALL WHO SEEK, HER APPRECIATION OF SELF.
