Maíz, also known as corn, is a large grain plant first domesticated by Indigenous peoples in Mexico about 10,000 years ago. The country celebrates September 29 as Día Nacional del Maíz (National Corn Day).
Planeta.com is curating tweets, photos and Facebook events that show off the variety and vulnerability of traditional corn in Mexico. Suggestions are welcome as we update this guide. We are particularly keen on learning how to translate ‘corn’ in Indigenous languages.
