Worldwide indigenous people are recognized for their unique culture and ways of relating between their own communities, other communities and also with the environment. This specific relationship with nature is directly reflected in the way they live.
There is an old Mayan Quiché legend that says gods tried to create humans with wood and mud, but they were not able to live, think, speak and feel until they were made with corn. In Mexico corn is one the most important grains, this country is the 6th worldwide corn producer and 4th consumer. Nicaraguans from Tisey and Apaguají mountains believe that the first woman and man were created with corn dough, beans soup and honey, bones were created with branches, organs with chili and avocado, and finally, the hair was also made by corn.
