In the Pueblo Indian culture, corn is the symbol of life. There are many legends about the corn maidens in the Indian culture, but, in general, represent the springtime, new life, growing of corn and its harvest. Corn Maidens were sent to give each clan a single seed of corn that, if properly cared for, would feed and sustain them.
