Corn Maiden (Note Card)

3.00

Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi & Cherokee)

A young Hopi maiden stands among blue corn as rain clouds bring moisture to the plants. She wraps herself from the early morning with a blanket carrying star symbols. Corn is very important in Hopi culture. When the Hopi people first came to this world, Tuuwaqatsi - the fourth world to the Hopi, they chose a small blue corn representing their life: a life of long existence and challenges. In a ceremony to bring a child into this world, it is a perfect ear of white corn that symbolizes the mother of a child.  Corn is used for food, flour, and for ceremonies and prayer. Corn is symbolic of the Hopi women, for they both give life and sustain the people and their culture.
