You will notice that I have been using the two terms ‘maize’ and ‘corn’ together. Why? Maize is a more accurate English translation of the Spanish word ‘maíz’ even though it’s not commonly used; in Latin America, maíz or maize connotes the original grain with all its cultural, political, economic and spiritual meanings. ‘Corn’ is a term used more often in the English-speaking world and in North America where it usually connotes something produced through industrial agricultural processes.
I’ve chosen to use the two together to represent what is a current struggle between different worldviews or cosmovision.
