Milpa in Mexico: Defending a Way of Life
UniTierra Founder Gustavo Esteva on the Defense of the Corn
Defending the native corn is a matter of life or death. To say that we are a people of corn is not a pretty metaphor, but rather, it is the state of things. Our life is associated with corn, and not just as a source of food. It defines a way of life and an affirmation of our relationship with Mother Earth.
