Corn


This workshop explores corn or maize in storytelling and cultural expressions throughout the world and history.  And of course the meal that we will prepare will feature as many different opportunities to honour and taste the delights of corn as possible!

Maize (corn) has traditionally been so important to the many different Original Peoples of North America that it played an essential role in stories about the creation of the world and of humankind. This workshop will take a closer look at some of these stories and the important role that corn as the third-largest food crop (after wheat and rice) plays in the world.
