Voices of Maíz is a collaborative project among various organizations, communities, and individuals coming together to amplify the voices of communities internationally to restore and re-engage the sacred in corn, and to show the fundamental role of Indigenous cultures in the creation and conservation of maize.
This storytelling collaboration “Voices of Maíz” comes in response to the threats corn cultures are facing through the globally imbalanced relationship to maize. This imbalanced relationship has caused a deterioration of the genetic base of maize and in the extraordinarily rich and important ways in which local stewards have maintained agrobiodiversity as part of their cultural fabric.
This project was initiated by the following group of women:
Adelita San Vicente Tello, Karen Swift, Kaylena Bray and Ruchi Shroff.
