Thousands of years ago, indigenous peoples of what is know today as Mexico, transformed a wild grass known as teocintle into the most widely used cereal in the world: maize.
This took centuries of observation, wisdom and deep understanding of nature that was passed down from generation to generation and would eventually result in maize.
The foundation and origin of many cultures in Anahuak, a sacred plant with a very close relationship with humans in which one depends on one another to persist.
